Time for something lighter, it is the Christmas season after all. I have a 4 foot tree which I've put up the past couple years and since I haven't had any young puppies at Christmas in previous years it was relatively safe. The cats don't fuss with it too much and although we've lost a few ornaments to rowdy playtime the tree hasn't suffered too badly in the face of four dogs.
Enter Cora. While the tree hasn't actually hit the floor, no ornaments have yet been broken, and everything seems to be going very smoothly, the tree has been closely inspected by one 6 month old puppy several times. Fortunately the tree has a couple bells as ornaments so I know when it has a puppy browsing it for toy selection. Also, browsing it for cats ... that's Ceilidh thinking the tree is good cover from an inquisitive nose.
