According to reports Kerry Katona has swapped a brown spaniel dog given to her as a birthday present less than a month ago for a black and white one as she preferred the colour- The poor little thing- Whats your opinions on this??

I do not think that pets should be given as unagreed gifts. I do not know the circumstances in this particular case, but if a person wants to make a gift of a pet, the pet and the timing of the pet should be chosen by the receiver. Pets should not be given as a surprise.
Pets can be with a person for a very long time and can become part of the family. It is important that the pet is a good fit for everyone's sake.
A lot of people have a vision of what their ideal pet is. This can be looks, personality, colouring, the type of bark, size etc. If she knew that she would not bond with this dog for whatever reason, at least she made the decision relatively early on so the puppy can go to someone who will appreciate it and hopefully the new puppy will be a cherished and happy pet.
