The howliday decorations are done at our house. This year we didn’t do as much as other years since we have a puppy. All pups can get into trouble with decorations, but puppies are especially at risk for getting into a pickle, and it can be dangerous.
Mom started the process by bringing up our tree from the basement. We have not had a real tree as long as I have lived here. I guess it is just super messy, and not worth all the hassle. Because we like the smell of a real tree, Mom has pine tree spray for our fake one. Olivia was super curious about the tree right off the bat.
All our howliday decorations are stored in red/green plastic bins. Olivia and I started sniffing out all the ornaments for the tree. Since puppies are known to steal things, the bottom third of our tree doesn’t have any hanging ornaments this year.
Of course, Mom found the head gear for us all. Olivia got to start with the antlers. I don’t think she really enjoyed looking like a deer, even though Mom does often call her a dear.
Lucky for Olivia, Mom realized a month or so ago that she doesn’t have her own stocking. Each of us always has a stocking hanging for when Santa comes, so Mom contacted Claude. Claude was happy to make a stocking with orange for Olivia. She also received a name tag in red to use with other stockings we have.
The little one was pretty excited to get a present, even before Christmas. We have been telling her the presents come on Christmas, but this one was early for her. I guess she is pretty amazed Claude even knew her name and put it on her stocking!
Bailie wanted to make sure everyone knows there are different fabrics and designs for the bone stockings. I think last year, she chose to hang up her plaid stocking, but this year, she wanted her purple bow one. Bails also wants to let everyone know you can get 10% off your order this howliday season by using the promo code HOLIDAY10 on the Happy Claude website. If you have a kitty, Claude also makes fish stockings for the feline population.
This year, Mom just couldn’t hang up Katie and Emma’s stockings. Last year, Mom’s cousin gave her a beautiful Emma photo ornament. It is now hanging front and center on our tree. I think Emma would love it. It has the glam factor she so loved.
Just weeks before Emma passed away, she ordered some ornaments for a review. She chose this adorable one for Katie as she was so close to Katie her entire life. This one is also hanging in a prominent spot on our tree in lieu of a stocking.
Mom says I am the Christmas lover in the family. Every year since I was a little puppy, I love to sit under the tree, or near it and I stare at it. The decorations and lights are so beautiful, I can’t help but admire it for the few weeks we have it up each year.
I’m trying to get Olivia to love the tree like I do, but it doesn’t seem like that will happen. She is too big to go under it anyway. Being small, I fit really well.
That is about it for our decorations. The howliday decorations we put up are enough for us, and will be less to put away in a month too! Remember if your pet needs a stocking, or if you need a gift for a pet, check out Claude and the super cute pet stockings. Don’t forget to use HOLIDAY10 to get your discount! We get nothing if you order pet stockings, it is just something we are sharing because we love ours so much.
