Q: I want to get my family a puppy for Christmas. Where's the best place to look?
A: Resist the urge to surprise your family with a cute and cuddly Christmas pet. To ensure a smooth transition, discuss routine tasks beforehand such as feeding, grooming, getting home to let the dog out, and poop patrol. If you absolutely, positively must have a puppy or kitten under the tree for Christmas, then consider this your holiday pet to-do list.
