Christmas is just about here. Many of us have decorations all over. We need to remember these little dogs we have and how to keep them safe. (It also helps if you have grandkids like Beach Bit around!)
I don't think Jax would do that-- he's too busy playing with his toys.
Butterscotch really wants to know what is happening! He's very curious and that curiosity can get this little guys in trouble. Make sure all the breakables are where they can't get to them. Many decorations are so fragile and you don't want your dogs getting ahold of broken glass.
This is Ginny. She is a friend of Mimi, one of my former foster dogs. Ginny kept her bows in, but Mimi didn't. So, she didn't have her picture taken. Come on, Mimi, you are such a pretty girl! Leave your bows in. When her mom asked her if she wanted to be photographed, she just gave her a Peke sneeze! I hope she's not getting into any chocolate. Chocolate is popular at Christmas YUM! But, it's not good for dogs.
Oh, here's Mimi. She pulled her bows out and has curled up in the chair. Many dogs will leave Christmas lights alone-- but some have to kept away from them. I have a doggy xpen around my trees-- dogs and grandkids can't touch. :-) Christmas lights can cause a shock if a dog tries to take a bit of it.
Peka/Petey is hoping his parents leave some food near-by because he knows he can't have the edible decorations. Popcorn and cookie decorations are not good for our pets.
