Chester’s Editorial Number 5
There has been a lot of talk about Christmas of late, my little family has been telling me mystifying tales about all the food and of all the colourful paper that I will surely destroy. It sounds like the perfect day, all my humans will be home, I will sample turkey, bacon, ham, there will be new things to chew and everyone will be so drunk they wont notice that I’ve trashed the joint. It seems too good to be true so I did a little research and found that I am one of the lucky ones. Christmas can be a horrible time for many four legged creatures like myself. A recent article in the Gympie Times revealed that a lot of animals get dumped at Christmas time for two main reasons. One is that people want to go on holidays and can’t take their animals so easy solution is to ditch them. The second apparent reason is that animals can be given as Christmas gifts and subsequently unwanted Christmas presents. I was horrified when I heard that other humans could be so heartless. Then my old girl told me a story about someone that used to be her best friend until he left his 9 month old kitten at her house because he moved somewhere that couldn’t have animals. Then he moved to London with out a thought about the kitten he had adopted and taken responsibility for. Pets are not disposable. Any Person who takes on the responsibility of a animals life must be prepared to make sure it is safe and happy until the end, otherwise do not make the commitment.
I know dogs like me can be destructive but you must be prepared for some mishaps, here are some examples of what we can get up to at Christmas.
Well I know this is one of my shortest editorials but the shop has been very busy this week with everyone getting there last minute guns and bullets. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and we will see you in the shop as of Tuesday.
