Jingle, jingle jangle! What’s that movement I see?
It’s Daisy, our sweet Havanese, snooping under our tree.
As she pokes her head out and starts to prance around,
It’s clear to see there’s something stuck between her tail and the ground.
Is it a string, a ribbon, a piece of garland? Oh, no. She’s a pup with much more class.
It’s a sharp silver hook with a hot pink ornament made of glass.
Whew! It was actually quite funny looking. However, 'tis the season for lots of hidden dangers and new and exciting objects. There are hooks and glass balls, bells, yummy smelling pine cones, ribbons, and of course, candy canes wrapped in cellophane. Each intriguing item carries its own threat.
But what about when company comes a-knocking? Let the hunt begin! For more hidden dangers, that is! There are pill boxes, hearing aid batteries, inhalers, and wallets to be eaten! Boxes of chocolates from Grandmas and Grandpas who need to spoil us, and don’t forget about the ½ full cups of caffeine laying around.
This is my favorite time of year! There are so many warm and fuzzy memories to be made with family and friends. Let’s just all remember to take the time to comb your home of hidden dangers so that your fuzzy Fido or feline stays safe.
