Pet News 13: Your pet and the Holidays

During this Holiday Season, it is important not to forget our pets and their needs. This is especially true during the coming cold winter nights.

I was at a gathering the other night and the guardians of a small dog had let their pet outside with a dog bed and blanket. Yes, the dog had a sweater on, but as the night progressed, so did the temperature. It went down.

When I looked out the window I said, “It’s too cold for your dog.”

To which they responded, “We can’t have him in the house while the party’s going on. He’ll get into things.”

And I wondered: what would it hurt to have a small tent, doghouse, or artificial ceiling made for the dog. Maybe seal off a section of a room for him.

It’s true, our pets might get stressed with the number of people invited, but we still need to provide for them. They deserve just as much care and attention as our guests.

So if you have a party or other gathering this Holiday season, don’t forget your pets. Don’t leave them out in the cold and forget to feed them. They are, after all, part of the family.
