Personalize Your Christmas Message with Your Pets on Video

Meet Tanner, Our SpokesDog
Yesterday was my lucky day. As with just about any day, I received a few emails that were curious. Sometimes I delete them and other times I ask a few questions to get more information before deciding if I want to participate in something or step back in caution. And then sometimes I throw caution to the wind and put all my trust into something that seems to have no risk for me. Today was one of those times, and it paid off with a fun, holiday video.

My Budding American Idol

Jack, at Pet Photo Fun, really did have some fun with my two dogs. I supplied the photo of Tanner above (his choice) and the one of Oliver at right. Jack's criteria had me reeling at first, but finally I did locate a few photos that met his guidelines, and off they went for him to animate.

What's more, Jack animated Tanner and Oliver in a teamwork sort of video that really ended up to be fun. Tanner offers a holiday message, followed by a personalized holiday song from Oliver. Who knew the boys could talk and sing to my readers?!!! Enjoy the video and tell your friends. Share it on Facebook. While it's not Disney, it certainly is entertaining. 

Wasn't that cute? I can imagine that Jack has a wonderful time at his job. You'll find him at the website above. He can make you a pet video, with either talk, singing, personalization, or you can choose from some already-prepared videos using pets if you'd rather not use your own. Jack also makes video birthday cards and I'm sure would be able to work on other similar greetings.

The whole process takes little more than an hour, from photo selection to finished product. I was flabbergasted that he had it done so quickly. And the cost is minimal, no more than you'd spend on a simple gift that has much less meaning to the recipient. If you'd like to share a similar customized video gift with someone special, this is a great way to do it. Thanks Jack! We love our video.

Full disclosure: Pet Photo Fun supplied this video to me as a promotional opportunity. I was not required to share my experience with you; however, I chose to do so because Jack was so delightful to work with and his work brought such joy.

Holidays With Dogs - 7 Must Have Safety Tips

Keep your dog safe and happy this holiday season by following these seven simple rules:

Rule #1: Chocolate is for you, not for your dog.

Rule #2: Dog food is for dogs and people food is for people. If you give your dog cookies, candy, turkey or other holiday foods, it can cause stomach upset, allergies or in some cases-- death. A quality dog food will meet all of your dog's dietary needs.

Rule #3: Keep a training collar and leash on your dog, whenever your dog is around friends and family. Using the holidays as a training opportunity is a good way to teach your dog that he must behave, regardless of distractions.

Rule #4: Your dog doesn't need expensive gifts to have a happy holiday. Let's face it--we're talking about an animal that derives pleasure from eating cat poop and rolling in dead fish.
You don't need to spend $80 on a doggie sweater, when a rawhide bone covered with peanut butter will bring your dog hours of

Rule #5: Confine your dog to a crate or a kennel when you can't supervise him. Dogs are "den animals." They derive a sense of security and well being when they're confined to a small, enclosed area. Think of a kennel in the same way you'd think of a baby's play pen or crib: If your dog isn't old enough (or responsible enough) to be left unsupervised-- then put him in the crate.

Rule #6: Keep all trash containers safely closed or behind a cabinet door that your dog cannot get into.

Rule #7: Dogs are social pack animals. Include your dog in family holiday activities and your dog will be a cherished part of your family.
