Christmas With Westies

As a child, can you recall how excited you would get when the Christmas tree and stockings went up for the holidays? Or how eager you were to open the gifts under the tree? Kids are not the only ones who enjoy the holiday festivities. Our pets too can get involved in the excitement; I know mine do. As long as we make the effort to keep the holidays safe for our pets, it can be a fun time for everyone. I always have to be sure that anything hazardous to my dogs are kept out of their reach and not allow them to be munching off of the humans food. I find that if I give them their own fun activities it makes them less eager to get into what is not theirs.

I have loved dogs ever since I was a little girl, and find that they can often cheer me up when I am sad. My dogs are so full of love that I decided I wanted them to be able to share that love with others as well. This is what planted the idea of Dog Therapy work in my head.
