Are we really just a few days from Christmas? The offices at BlogPaws are all abuzz with getting ready for a stellar 2014, but we still have days left in December before we ring in a new year.  The BlogPaws December Week Three Recap is here.

This week on the BlogPaws blog, in our community, and in general within the pet blogosphere, things are busy! Here’s what you missed and what’s happened this third week of December, 2013:

Pet Parent Debate

Are you your dog’s owner, guardian, parent, caretaker, or something else? This is a hotly contested topic that seems to go round and round in news cycles. I opened this can of worms and would love your feedback on the topic of pet parenting and “labels.”

Pet Holiday Photo Contest

In honor of this month being BlogPaws Celebrates Giving Back, we want to see your holiday photos of your pets.  Send a photo of your pet(s) in a holiday photo of Christmas, Hanukkah, etc or a winter scene. Full details on the BlogPaws Photo Contest post.

Prizes will be awarded to THREE winners and each prize is valued at up to $25 from our friends at Pet360!!!!

A local shelter is advertising “half-price pet adoptions for the holidays.” Our blog manager, Robbi Hess, goes down the road of what to resolve before 2014 hits. Is this something that is appropriate and should pets be half price, especially at the holidays? Let us know at the half price pets post.
