Johnny and I learned an important lesson last night.  If you are a dog, these two can easily be mistaken for one another.....

The night we put up our Christmas tree, we noticed Palmer curiously sniffing the ornaments but we foolishly thought nothing of it.  He accidentally knocked an ornament out of my hand but what we didn't realize was that the playful little dog thought it was a toy.... a ball!  While I still wasn't convinced that he wouldn't mark the tree, I left work a little early to check on Palmer and came home to this...

Palmer was able to get 4 ornaments off the bottom of our tree and smashed them all to pieces.  Here's the guilty pup sitting in the middle of the crime scene.  I checked his paws thoroughly and looked for blood on our furniture and Palmer's blanket.  The good news is that there were no signs of injury and luckily Palmer didn't hurt himself whatsoever.

Our solution?  Move all the ornaments to the top half of the Christmas tree so they are far from Palmer's reach while we're gone.  Hahah -- after the initial shock and cleaning up the mess, it makes us laugh to think about how much fun Palmer was having with his toy 'balls' while we were gone.  He's just a silly little dog trying to have a good time.

Yes, it's yours, Palmer... need to mark your territory.
