    My two “grand dogs” since I’ve yet to be given grandchildren. Both of my sons recently rescued a dog each. A one-year old cocker spaniel and an absolutely adorable 7-week old mix of black lab and we think Chow. I love dogs anyway and would rescue them all if I could. Head Up Ya’ll. Check out your local animal control. The puppy was from a litter of 8 about to be put down. Every thing was free – – kennel, carrier, dog food and first two immunizations. You can’t beat that and you’ll save a life.

  15. Marilyn N says:

    We are buying presents for our beagle Reilly who deserves something because our cat Shadow always intimidates him as he walks about the house. He is a devoted best friend to my husband. Our cat Shadow needs presents because he is sad that our other cat is no longer with us. Any extra will go to the animals my daughter falls in love with at the emergency hospital she works at.

  25. aj says:

    My daughter’s rescue Dalmation has just been diagnosed with lymphoma.
    This dog has been a family member for 10 years- she and my daughter are best of friends.
    Chemo for dogs is actually quite affordable, compared to humans- for this, we are grateful.
    Fortunately, dogs with lymphoma respond well to chemo- they get about 6-11 months of quality recovery, and when it recurs, you provide comfort measures, as the second time around, chemo doesn’t help.
    So, I am going to buy Cassie whatever she wants for Christmas- probably a steak!!!

  26. Kathryn says:
