We’re all familiar with the classic Holiday movie scene where a small child joyfully discovers his most cherished gift beneath the Christmas tree: an adorable puppy (or kitten) with a big red bow around its neck. A new puppy for Christmas!
I’ve always wondered, when watching such a scene play out on television or the big screen, how the parents managed to pull off such a feat. Now that I have dogs and cats of my own, I view this type of scene from an increasingly skeptical point of view.
Here’s the reality: Once that big red bow is removed, that adorable kitten is going to run to the top of your Christmas tree, sending ornaments crashing to the ground. The cute puppy will likely piddle on the Christmas tree skirt or chew up one of Junior’s brand new toys. The challenges of adopting a new animal, especially around the holidays when life is already chaotic and busy, can sometimes prove to be too much to handle….

I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how did you manage to reblog this to WordPress? I tried but it would only let me reblog to Blogger and I don’t have a blog there.
There isn’t an actual function to reblog to Blogger to WordPress, so I did it manually. I just started a new post on WordPress and typed “Reblog” in the title. Then I copied a snippet of my original post on Blogger and added a link at the bottom of the post so the reader could be directed back to the blogger post. If you want to reblog, feel free to copy my post here on WordPress and paste it on your own blog. Just be sure to copy the link that directs the reader to Blogger.
