Anyone who doesn't think that pets can be fun during the holidays has never bought reindeer antlers for the soul purpose of having fun with Fido and Fluffy. Before I share some off the wall holiday snapshots of animals not enjoying their stupid owner's sense of humor, first, I want to share an announcement from our friends, Heather and Lindsay, at Support Supernatural. Their fundraising efforts for A Dog's Life has gone better than they could have possibly dreamed and they have a message about upcoming efforts for the new year.
As we conclude 2009, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude.
We honestly do not know where to begin. 2009 was a truly a wonderful year. This fandom blows us away time and time again. You creatively promote our favorite show relentlessly. You passionately promote Jared's charity consistently... And you donate like crazy! Between our 2009 campaign fundraiser and our additional holiday fundraiser, we raised a total of $17,431! Take that in for a second. Can you believe it? Think about how many animals were saved because of YOU! You all are so amazing. Dare we say it, but you are the BEST FANS IN THE WORLD!
As we enter 2010, we will of course continue to do what we have done since season two. We'll continue to promote the heck out of the most awesome show on television today and of course we will continue to raise funds for A Dog's Life Rescue. Full details will follow, but expect monthly incentives, new interviews...And a whole new site to donate - where your donation dollars will be stretched further than any site we've used before! To say we're excited is an understatement.
Please know that we would never ask anyone individually to donate, but what help we would love to have in 2010 is for you to keep doing what you do best - tell the world about Supernatural and about the good deeds we fans do. We are such huge animal advocates and being able to tie this passion into our favorite TV show has been so rewarding. We hope you are enjoying the ride as well.
Here's to a magical 2010 and a fabulous start to a new decade!

So, without those that adopt unwanted pets from places like A Dog's Life, you'd be missing out on joyful moments like this:
Yes, this is elle2's puppy Jobe. Growing fast, but still utterly adorable! Especially in the snow.
Winona I rescued from a co-worker's garage the day she was supposed to be taken to the Humane Society as an unwanted kitten. That was almost 17 years ago. Yep, she's still going strong at that age. She still hates posing yearly with reindeer ears:
Elvis we got at a pet store, but he spent almost two months there and had a respiratory infection from being penned up too long by the time we took him home. He is the sweetest little puppy and loves people so much! The ideal family dog. He takes the reindeer ears as more of a necessary evil.
Cinder is a 13 year old cantankerous yet loyal old dog who has never loved the reindeer ears. This is her "I'm getting too old for this crap" look.
Gary is the smartest of all our pets. Why? For one, he and his brother survived as kittens on their own in a neighbor's garage after their mother put them there. The owner was going to let them loose in the wild before my mother rescued them. She kept Gary's brother, we took Gary. He's also brilliant because when he saw the reindeer ears coming he quickly jumped into our Christmas tree.
Without pets, see what fun you're missing out on? Support A Dog's Life, or a local animal charity. These days, they need you more than ever. It also keeps the reindeer ear manufacturers in business.

Jasminka, hooked to Supernatural from episode one, has led several lives so far. After studying psychology, literature, drama and opera, she eventually found her calling for becoming a psychotherapist, treating trauma survivors, terminally ill and suicidal patients, and many young people with personality disorders or changes, which she considers to be the most rewarding job possible. Apart from that she has been teaching, but would never give up being a therapist for lectures only.
She started to write in high school, initially to continue books she had grown to love and didnâ€™t want the story to end; later she became a reporter for her universityâ€™s newspaper. Early on she experienced writingâ€™s relaxing and enriching effect, and with her imagination incessantly at work the need for expressing thoughts and emotions via writing has always been there. Particularly in emotionally taxing periods of her life writing has become a tool to sort out and untangle thoughts and find solutions, on a creative level. She hopes to complete a novel sheâ€™s been writing. She is happiest when with her loved ones, sharing experiences, rambling over books, theatre, movies or a certain tv-show. She dreams of parachuting at least once in her life, swimming with dolphins and visiting Hawaii. Despite being acquainted with loss, her biggest fear is losing people she loves.
Supernatural has had a most unexpected and incredibly stimulating impact on Jasminka, as its many layers wouldnâ€™t leave her alone. Although this amazing show deals with the paranormal, its deeply human story moves her the most, and her curiosity to explore the facets of its charactersâ€™ relationships and struggles or the seriesâ€™ metaphysics arises with every episode, never ceasing to inspire her.
Sablegreen is a medical research scientist specializing in immunology and genetics. She also has been involved with community service at the government level for 15 years. She is currently employed in the pediatrics department of a large medical complex. She spends much of her free time competing in agility, tracking, obedience, and carting with her two dogs. They also do therapy work on weekends at nursing homes, hospitals and schools. She found Supernatural in the summer of its second year by renting the DVD from season one. She has been hooked ever since.
