“Forgotten Hollywood”- Doris Day’s Christmas Advice…

   Animal activist Doris Day has a reasoned suggestion for the Holidays:

Many people think dogs, cats, birds, and bunnies make good Christmas gifts, and they couldn’t be more wrong… The holidays tend to be loud and chaotic — an awful environment into which to bring a new pet. Those cute, rambunctious puppies and kittens given as gifts often prove to be too much for the household to handle and wind up back at the shelters.   

   Her alternative, though less satisfying to youngsters on Christmas, may resonate with some families.

A much better option is a gift certificate from a local shelter or rescue organization, and wait to redeem it until the dust from the holidays settles. When things calm down, take the entire family, other pets included, and carefully choose a pet that you can commit to for its entire life… The best way to honor the memory (of a lost pet) is to save another life from the shelter.

She is down to three dogs and a few cats.

   As for this Christmas, Day says it be typically low-key, and she plans on spending it with her family… and her loving pets.          DORIS DAY —–>
