It’s true. More and more people are buying Chrissie presents for their pets. Just more proof that these days that pets are no longer just companion animals. They are part of the family. “Of course” I hear you say! Christmas is a time that pets can get spoilt more than usual and popular gifts for the Christmas stocking this year could be a photography session for your pet, a treat such as doggie chocs, clothing for dogs has become very popular with designer lines now available and elaborate cat accessories such as water fountains are popular as pet owners look for new ways to pamper their four legged family members. Of course for those where nothing is too good for their pet, there’s always the option of a dog spa and holiday resort. Of course you wouldn’t think of giving them a gift without a special message and card, and with this in mind you can now even buy Christmas cards for your pets, and for pets who are digitally savvy, you could get them an e-card!
It’s great to do these things for your pet, but also spare a thought for those lovely animals that will be spending Christmas in the pound or shelter. Possibly their last Christmas, if no-one chooses to give them a home. How about making a donation to a local shelter to help them give the animals in their care some special love this Christmas?
