Jez: All Daisy wants is a walk on the beach and a cuddle

Have your say

Apparently one in five pet owners give their furry friends presents at Christmas.

My wife is guilty of this, as she purchased a doggy stocking from the local pet shop to give to Daisy, our Patterdale terrier.

This is crazy behaviour. They’re animals!

I completely realise they’re much-loved members of the family, but they’re still animals and all Daisy wants at Christmas is some stroking, cuddles and a long walk on the beach.

Even more ridiculous is the fact that Daisy ‘buys’ my dad’s dog Charlie a present and Charlie also replies with a present for Daisy.

Perhaps they could take things one stage further and phone each other up on Christmas morning for a doggy chat?
