The Christmas tree is back

Hi everyone, it is Harley here.

Woo hoo look at me, in all my Christmas finery!

I was soooo excited when the Christmas Tree reappeared at our house last night.

I never really got into the Christmas spirit last year (I was still a little unsure in my new home), but this year I LOVED helping mum put the Christmas tree up.

All those wonderful ornaments to steal off the tree - just for me!

Ellie was very laid back this year and just watched as mum and I decorated the tree.

Mum would put the decorations on, and then I would take them off. On, off, on off, it was a great game.

Here are Ellie and I next to our Christmas Tree. Ellie is lying down at the front, I am sitting nicely beside the tree.

You will notice there is no angel on our tree - this is because Ellie ate her head last year. Oh dear!

I might have destroyed a few little ornaments, but at least I have never killed the Christmas Tree Angel. Bad girl Ellie!

It is very hard keeping little sisters under control sometimes.

But here is the worst thing of all.
The pinkies have hidden the Christmas tree away in the rumpus room this year.
Behind closed doors!

How am I supposed to steal the ornaments now???????

And the Presents! How can Ellie and I unwrap all that lovely paper, if we can't even get in there?

I can see the Christmas tree, but I just can't get in there.

I need to learn how to open the door all by myself.

That would give the pinkies a nice surprise wouldn't it?

I will have to use my Airedale ingenuity to get around this little obstacle!

Love Harley xxx

Hello Harley. I am a door opener extraordinaire, so let me know if you need tips. I don't think ma and pa think getting a tree this year is a good idea with you-know-who around (not me!).

Toodle pip,

Hi Harley,
Tess here. I'm pretty good at opening doors. I'll think about your dilemma and get back to you.
Your tree looks very nice. We hope to put ours up tomorrow.

Hugs and tail wags

Bummer about the Christmas tree being locked away - I'm sure you'll find a way in!!

Your tree is just beautiful but you're right - you need to be near it all the time and keep a close watch for Santa! I've never done it but I think you grab the door knob with your mouth and rear up on your hind legs and turn the knob at the same time. Let me know if this works, okay!

Love ya lots,
