A Dogs Rules for Christmas Part III IV V

by Katie Shellhorse

Now, my favorite part of this whole Christmas holiday thing is the eating part! Humans LOVE to eat extra good stuff around this time of year. While that is definitely a good thing (alot more scraps to go around) there are some rules to follow to make sure you are included in your human?s holiday cheer.

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:

a. Not all strangers appreciate kisses and leans

b. Don?t eat off the buffet table

c. Beg for goodies subtly

d. Be pleasant, even if unknowing strangers sit on your sofa

e. Don?t drink out of glasses that are left within your reach


I don?t know about you, but I for one LOVE attention. And any attention I can get is good attention, but to get that extra special attention from your humans on the holidays there are some rules you must follow.

6. Your humans may take you visiting. Here your manners will also be important:

a. Observe all the rules in #4 for trees that may be in other people?s houses. (4a is particularly important)

b. Respect the territory of other animals that may live in the house.

c. Tolerate children.

d. Turn on your charm big time.


Ok, last but certainly not least is the most important rule of all. I cannot stress this enough. Please pay attention and stop licking your hind-end for one second and perk up your ears. This holiday tip for us dogs deserves some extra special attention. Now I for oone have not witnessed such a creature, but I am told that he definately does exist and he keeps our humans happy with lost of presents, even some of them for us. So please do not ever, ever break this rule.

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

And that?s it for our ?A Dog?s Rules for Christmas? series. Hope you like it and Happy Holidays!
