Christmas Casualty List

The tree is up! Finally! We usually put it up the day after Thanksgiving, but this year we waited.
I'll have to get a picture of it- we have it in the corner of the room, and it is surrounded with a coffee table and a foot hassock- just so the Big Dog won't try to get underneath it, then stand up. (That actually happened with one of my other Danes! )
And to make sure the two of them don't get into too much mischief with the Noble Fir we have the biggest squirt gun alive on top of the table. The pups are fearful of the dang thing and I don't blame them. It shoots a gallon or so of water in one pull! I could wash my car with he water it puts out! 

So the dogs MOSTLY stay away from the tree- because, as you know, just because an ornament is unbreakable doesn't make it Un- Chewable!
Case in point- one hard resin teddy bear. Now a blob of resin that once looked like a Christmas bear...
Ahhh ...the casualties of Christmas.

There should be a song about that!

lol! That would make a great song that we could all relate to. We got our tree up yesterday, too. We wait because if it goes up to early we go a little insane with the daily "Is it almost Christmas yet?" from our 3 kidlets. The Advent Calendar just seems to make the anticipation worse. lol!

Yupe, there should be a song about that. I'm sure they could find some of the lyrics at my house. I might have to invest in one of those water guns, although the husky would probably love it.
