Just Jesse Webisode: Jesse receives a gift from Santa for Christmas; what could it be?
Jesse shares an important message, about not giving a puppy as a gift for the Holidays to someone who is not prepared for the responsibilities a puppy brings, in this special edition Christmas video.
*Jesse didn't really get a puppy for Christmas. This is a scripted video for entertainment purposes only, and meant to show why giving a puppy as a gift to someone who didn't want or expect a puppy is a bad idea i.e. in the scripted video, Jesse didn't want the puppy (the gift giver didn't take into account the recepient's feelings when the gift was given).
Jesse was acting to make it look like he didn't like the puppy
*** This video is meant to spread the message that puppies aren't only Christmas presents, but living, breathing, sentient beings who are members of the family~ Far too many people get a puppy as a gift without thinking it through; resulting in puppies being sent to the pound. :(
Puppies are a big responsibility and require lots of love and attention, even after the holidays are over. Puppies are not just for Christmas. When giving a gift, it is important to know what the recipient would like. While puppies are adorable and cute; the person might not be ready to take on such a big responsibility (especially during a busy time of year).
If you are in the small percentage of people who understand the full responsibility of bringing home a new family member, and all that comes along with a puppy; this video message is not for you =o) This is an educational video to get people to think before giving a puppy as a gift on a whim; not to target those who will love and take care of their new puppy for the rest of their life.
We hope you enjoy!
