Default I'm sure disaster diverted...

My daredevil dog decided to jump from sofa arm on top of kennel and get an ornament off my daughter's 4ft tree. Needless to say I got the pieces of butterfly away but thought the hanger was still on the tree. After relocating tree and kennel, I notice chewing air going on and immediately fished the hook from the back of his tongue. Wheeewww. Glad I knew about the putting everything in the mouth habit. I'm sure I just saved a lot of pain for all.

That's a scarey moment. I've been worried since we put our tree up this afternoon. Only used hooks when necessary and hung those up on higher branches. Glad you were on top of it!

Oh, wow!!! That was a scary moment. Owning a Basset that swallowed rocks requiring two surgeries within a year, I learned you just can't be to careful with these hounds. They are like having an exploring toddler around and everything goes in the mouth. Stay vagilant over the holidays with all the extra stuff and goodies around.

Just moved the tree to my daughters room which is off limits via gate due to it being her space with lots of hazards even for my feet. Haha.

Yes, everyone be careful with the hounds, no one wants tragedies during the holidays or any day.

Oh god, glad you caught it in time. We have opted not to go for a big tree this year, just a small one on a side table but lots of lovely decorations around our house.
Joey is only 13 weeks and I would say if we had a tree he would think "fantastic...lets pull it down".
Not appending I'm afraid pal, maybe next year :/ xx

My christmas tree for the last 30 years has been a three footer at least 4-5 feet above the ground. I trim it and then put it up. I've had bassets for 30 years, but I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

We have a 7ft tree, but will only be decorating the top 4 ft this year, that's all we have decorations for now after 2 years of having Bella. I refuse to buy more. I was digging the garden this summer past and even found a few ornaments off the tree she'd buried. I'm hoping as she gets older this fascination with the tree will pass.

We get little trees that are kept high. Hate to say but if Bella is anything like Lula she will never deny herself stealing decorations, knocking it over - just general Christmas havoc...it's their festive spirit
