Don’t Get Your Kids A Puppy For Christmas Unless You’re Prepared To Raise A Grown Dog!

Getting a puppy for Christmas is one of those adorable quintessential holiday moments that we see so often in movies. Of course it's cute; the little puppy wags its tail, licks its new person's face, and they live happily ever after, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, those movies don't tell the whole story.

If I Acted Like My Dog Crackers, I’d Get My Ass Kicked All The Time

My little rat terrier mix Crackers has a serious Napoleon complex. He’s only 17 lbs, less than a third the size of my other dog, Miles.
