We fully enjoyed this Christmas, spending time with family and friends while in direct contact with those we could not physically be with. Getting into the Christmas spirit started slowly this year but once Marva decorated the house the magic began. Even the dogs seemed to enjoy the season. Pippi has turned out to be the puppy from hell. While we love her to death, she has a bit of a chewing problem. Over Christmas she destroyed six pair of my wife's shoes (a hanging offence) after she learned how to open the closet door and then chewed the arm off a hide-a-bed couch (I had to hide the guns) in the time- out room.
The good news is that the dogs loved the Christmas tree and decorations and not one ornament or decoration was touched or damaged. Go figure.
