To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Dogs Trust's slogan "A dog is for life, not just for Christmas," UK-based street artist and dog lover Teddy Baden included it in this great mural next to a very cute pug wearing its finest holiday sweater. With Christmas fast approaching, the organization is stressing to families that pets should not be purchased as spur of the moment gifts because they often end up in shelters when the lust wears off. The mural is beautiful and the cause is a worthy one.
