Video montage of people getting puppies for Christmas (video)

Getting a dog was a lifelong dream of mine (after having dogs as a kid). But I have to say, now that I have a dog – having a dog is like having a child. It’s far more responsibility than I ever imagined. And far more than having a cat.

I’m glad I have my dog, but it’s still a life-changer, having someone extra to look out for, come home to even when you’d rather stay out a few more hours, someone extra you have to worry about if you’re thinking of jetting away for a weekend, etc.

Parents need to be seriously aware that they’re adopting another half-child, and not fall into the familiar trap of getting a pet at Christmas, and then giving it away by Easter (here’s one argument for why not to get pets at Christmas, I think the arguments, as presented, are a bit extreme, though the overall concern is valid).

With that in mind, this montage of kids and adults getting puppies for Christmas is awfully adorable.
