Do your pets 'love or hate' the holidays?

Maybe, but 'it depends'.

It depends for me too. I like some aspects of the holidays, but as I get older my idea of a great holiday has changed.

  • I used to like crowds. One other person is just fine now.
  • I used to like going to the mall and shopping for gifts. Online shopping is 'fantastic' now.
  • I used to like cooking special dishes. Harris Teeter, Publix and Fresh Market make wonderful to go meals.
  • I used to like going to parties. Now I like a warm fire, a good book and Netflix.

But maybe Fido and Fluffy aren't as 'fuddy duddy' as I am. 😛

One thing I still like is Christmas music. My pets do to!

We hope you and your pet family have the 'best kind of holiday' you each desire. And lots of beautiful music!

We spoke to Dr. Mary Gardener, DVM, veterinarian and cofounder of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice about the traditional holiday decorations that could pose a risk to our furry family members. Don’t “bah humbug!” us, though: You still have plenty of décor options that feel festive and stylish.
