This time of year is filled with special foods, decorations and activities. I love the celebrations, but I am also cautious about them in some ways. At the risk of sounding un-festive, I always feel like shouting, “It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye!” (Actually, since becoming a Mom, this is actually something I HAVE said, and not just as a joke.) Perhaps because I have heard tragic tales of every type that relate to beloved pets, I am eager to share what I know about the dangers to avoid. I recently wrote about pet safety during the holidays  for my local paper.
