the day our great dane decided the holidays were over.
saturday started just like any other day...matthew went to the grocery store while i was at the gym...he picked me up, we drove home, walked through our front door and what we discovered was shocking...brixa decided the holidays in our household were OVER. she greeted us as always, only this time she had glitter all over her face and behind her was a living room full of shattered ornaments. the bottom half of our tree was completely bare. apparently she thought those sparkly objects were toys.
we immediately called the vet and brought her in. we accounted for all of the ornament hooks, but discovered that at least 18 of our 50 ornaments were destroyed by this little monster. thank goodness we purchased the "shatter proof" ornaments from target that were made of a hard plastic rather than glass...otherwise who knows how this would have turned out. luckily she is okay...she did get sick later that evening and let's just say there is plenty of glittery holiday cheer in our backyard.
her weekend was filled with plenty of belly rubs and kisses and she is starting to feel more like herself. in the end i guess she got what she wanted because we took down the tree and put it away for next year...maybe :)
