A Dog Named Christmas

KittenBigDogFeetAll you dog lovers out there – make sure you don’t miss the Hallmark Hall of Fame world premiere of “A Dog Named Christmas” on Sunday, November 29 at 9/8c only on CBS. This TV movie is based on Greg Kincaid’s popular novel about a developmentally challenged young man who names his adopted dog Christmas and set out to convince the whole town to participate in a local animal shelter’s inaugural “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.”

Please make sure that if you are thinking about adopting a furry best friend this Christmas that you truly consider the ongoing commitment that will be required of you and your family to make sure that you can provide a happy forever home which includes making sure that you really understand and are willing to provide all that is necessary (including where to go if you need help) for fulfilling your furry friends needs for his or her entire lifetime (not just for Christmas).

Adoption should never be a spur of the moment decision because there are just too many important issues to consider, including whether or not your family has the time to take care of a new best friend, what size and temperament is best suited for you and your family, whether you and your family will be out walking rain or shine, and so much more.

Adoption needs to be a well thought out family decision and never based on feeling sorry as this will only bring your new friend into your life with the wrong energy that could cause behavioral issues farther down the road.

Thinking about adopting? If you need help making this very important decision, ask an expert.
