Hark the Harold Anglels sing
My puppy just brought me a Christmas thing.
She took it down right off the tree
And brought it out to the kitchen for me.
I can see that she's pleased
By the grin on her face.
What's that? Oh No!
It's Granny's' good lace

That sweet smelling soap
That I bought for Sis
Looks mighty peculiar
There's something amiss.
She thinks it's for her
She says "It's Mine".
And undoes the wrapping in 3/4 time.

She takes lights from the tree
She takes down the bows
Where the tree angel has gone
Nobody knows.
She takes with delight
All the little round balls.
Rolls them over the floor
And some down the halls.

Battered and bent, to the left sags the tree
But the pup is now sleeping, curled up next to me.
She's soft and she's warm, an innocent delight
So Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

That's too funny. This will be our first Christmas with our beagle (Baxter). We rescued him in February. He's almost 2, but judging by his antics, he thinks he's still a 6 month old pup. I've been leary about putting up a tree, 'cause I'm sure all this and more is exactly what will happen! Good thing he's cute as a button!

I penned that when Holly was a year old and forgot about it until I found it packed away with the tree. She's now five but last night brought, from under the tree, a little teddy bear, into the family room, very ,very gently. She hoped mabee it was for her but is meant for a grandkid. She hasn't changed.

This will last over a decade. Don't relax yet!

I have never been big on having a tree in my house, but now I have a cat, and there's my excuse for NEVER having one... LOL!

Hi Gina - Baxter isn't our first beagle. So we are well aware of their attitude about things. He is certainly more "mischievous" than our first one (Ringo) was. Even at 6 months old, Ringo's first Christmas, he had no interest in the tree or anything under it. His thing was shoes - I didn't dare leave a pair lying around until Ringo was well past 3 years old. Baxter doesn't have a specialty like that. Anything and everything he's not supposed to take is exactly what he wants.

We've had cats in the past and been very lucky. They have never bothered with the tree - but I've heard horror stories.

Most of my cats have done battle with the Christmas tree year after year. I've found the best bet is to put a hook in the ceiling at the top of the tree (it stays there and a plant can hang from it during the year) and use a piece of clothesline to tie the top of the tree to the hook. Between being in a stand and being tied to the ceiling, the tree is pretty stable. It keeps the tree from crashing down should a cat decide to climb it, which does happen, but it doesn't protect the ornaments from breaking!
