Leo vs The Christmas Tree
Last year we were pretty worried Leo would knock down the Christmas tree. Luckily he didn’t, but he did come close! He was very interested in the tree, though. Every chance he got, he would sniff all around it and nudge the lights and ornaments. We made the right decision in buying all plastic ornaments because he would pull them down as well.
This year he is still very much interested in the tree but he doesn’t knock the ornaments down, at least not with his nose, that is. His tail, on the other hand, is a totally different story. Leo’s tail alone can take anything down, including all of the ornaments that get in the way. Our tree has only been up for 2 weeks now and all of the ornaments that were at Leo’s tail height have now been moved up. So now there’s a big gap in the tree because I got tired of picking up ornaments that went flying when Leo’s overly exuberant tail passed by. Leo doesn’t seem to mind.
Maybe next year we’ll be able to get some poinsettias, but that’s a far stretch since Leo absolutely loves to destroy any houseplant.
We hope you all have a great holiday and a very happy new year!
