That's so funny. My daughter was given a present last week. It was wrapped in brown paper, tied with string and the bow had a Diamond in a claw setting dangling from it. Very simple but pretty.

That is too funny!!! Jake and Shelby always "help" when I wrap gifts.

But...you forgot the part about the dog peeing on the gift as the final wrap! :shock:

LMAO I love it but Cathy beat me to the last one! I remember when I was younger, my parents got a Welsh Terrier puppy and she had been paper trained by the breeder. Every time someone put wrapping paper on the floor to wrap a present in, Sheena would go and pee on it :lol:

I had a cat when I was younger that would shred my uncles wrapped present every year without fail. She would not touch anyone elses, just his. It was so strange! :lol:

Wow Kirsty! You've done well :flwr: I have written the majority of my cards and have been into my spare room and tried to sort out the stack of pressies but still need to wrap them :roll:

All cards written and sent - all pressies wrapped (finished today). Bella drove me crazy! She kept pinching my gift tags and walking on my paper. I briefly wondered about wrapping her and giving her as a gift! :lol:
