Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Naughty Havachon! Daisy’s First Christmas Decoration Destruction

on December 24, 2010

Okay, I admit it, I love those vintage brush trees from Christmases past. You know, the ones that added a bit of “outdoor realism” to model villages and train sets. I got a bunch of them at an estate auction a few years back, and they’ve been dotting my Christmas village ever since.

Until now.

Daisy has discovered brush trees. She hasn’t bothered with any of the decorations that are well within her reach all this time, but yesterday DD found her happily chewing away on the base of one of the trees. Oh, the carnage! Flocking and sparkles were everywhere!

But the worst part is that the base of the tree is made of wood and it’s painted red – OLD red paint, which could potentially have lead in it. We found very little of the wood base in the wreckage, so we have to assume she swallowed most of it.

The tree base isn’t large, but she still destroyed a pretty good amount of it and got enough of it into her stomach to possibly cause her problems. I looked up information about problems dogs could have from ingesting wood, and it seems that the wood itself won’t do her any harm; it’s more the paint we’re worried about. Frankly, I’m shocked she didn’t get any splinters in her gums!

We waited all day for this mauled tree base to make its appearance – in a very unpleasing form – but nothing happened. I guess it wasn’t enough to cause Daisy any harm after all. It’s a Christmas miracle! LOL! 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone from Daisy and her family!

Merry Christmas!
