A Dog’s Rules For Christmas

A Dog’s Rules For Christmas

1. Be especially patient with your humans
during this time. They may appear to be more stressed-out than usual
and they will appreciate long comforting dog leans.

2. They may come home with large bags of things they call gifts. Do
not assume that all the gifts are yours.

3. Be tolerant if your humans put decorations on you. They seem to
get some special kind of pleasure out of seeing how you look with
fake antlers.

4. They may bring a large tree into the house and set it up in a
prominent place and cover it with lights and decorations. Bizarre as
this may seem to you, it is an important ritual for your humans, so
there are some things you need to know: – Don’t pee on the tree –
Don’t drink water in the container that holds the tree – Mind your
tail when you are near the tree – If there are packages under the
tree, even ones that smell interesting or that have your name on
them, don’t rip them open – Don’t chew on the cord that runs from the
funny-looking hole in the wall to the tree

5. Your humans may occasionally invite lots of strangers to come
visit during this season. These parties can be lots of fun, but they
also call for some discretion on your part: – Not all strangers
appreciate kisses and leans – Don’t eat off the buffet table – Beg
for goodies subtly – Be pleasant, even if unknowing strangers sit on
your sofa – Don’t drink out of glasses that are left within your

6. Likewise, your humans may take you visiting. Here your manners
will also be important: – Observe all the rules in #4 for trees that
may be in other people’s houses. (4a is particularly important) –
Respect the territory of other animals that may live in the house –
Tolerate children – Turn on your charm big time

7. A big man with a white beard and a very loud laugh may emerge from
your fireplace in the middle of the night. DON’T BITE HIM!!
