We all know that a dog is for life not just for Christmas but how many parents will be feeling pressurised by their children who want a puppy this Christmas? According to Hamleys' prediction of the Top Ten Most Wanted, this year puppies are well and truly at the top of the list - but parents can breathe a sigh of relief because these puppies are toys - and for many children they will be a lot more practical than the real thing.

Following the report of the shooting of a pet dog on Seaham Beach yesterday (25th July 2013), we took a closer look into this horrifying form of attack on our pets to see how widespread the problem is becoming. And we are shocked at the results...there were 799 incidents air rifle attacks reported to the RSPCA in 2012.

The RSPCA has hit out at owners who left their dogs in hot cars over the first weekend of July, despite repeated warnings about the dangers. The animal welfare charity was inundated with hundreds of complaints from people who spotted animals suffering as the temperature rocketed to 90 degrees in some parts of the country.
According to the RSPCA, new figures show an alarming increase in the number of pets being abandoned, with more than 37,000 animals being dumped across England and Wales in the past year. This is a rise of 9,000 (34%) from the previous year, with financial difficulties being listed as one of the reasons people are getting rid of their pets. Every year the charity sees a sharp rise in abandonments at the height of summer and evidence from the RSPCA and other animal charities suggests some people chose to get rid of their pets rather than pay for them to be looked after while they are on holiday.
