Surprisingly, this year Cay was really good over Christmas. This was our second Christmas with Cay, and last year he was still very "new" to us. We decided to put the tree far away from his crate so that he wouldn't mistake it for a present for him. He was so good and didn't eat anything he shouldn't have, but then...

he ate a card. It was a little chewed up when we woke up one morning, but it could have been worse. We had about 20 or so cards displayed on our shelf, and this is the only one that Cay jumped up and grabbed as a snack.

However, a few days after Christmas, the big stack of presents that had been underneath the tree was whittled down to just a few stragglers. It was then, after we had been lulled into a false sense of security that Cay decided to attack!
The present itself was totally in tact. But the packaging, oh, the packaging. I had to get a new box and new wrapping papper and, to add insult to injury, I couldn't find the scotch tape, so I had to make due with masking tape! Oh, the indignity!

At least I didn't have to wait for the present to pass through Cay's intestinal tract. Can you imagine that conversation?

"Merry Christmas! My dog ate this, but don't worry, I washed it really well!"
