Last night my husband and I pulled out the Christmas tree and got it put together. I'm crazy and own a 12 foot fake pre-lit tree it takes sooooo long to get it up we do it AFTER bedtime just so the kids are not bugging us to hurry up. As always Fletcher was VERY interested in what we were doing. He was sniffing the box and I was prepared not to have a tree skirt this year because as many of you know Fletcher loves to eat fabric so I was ready for that. I also went out and bought some of that bitter spray that is to keep dogs from chewing things because I could not think of any other way to keep Fletcher and the tree safe.
So Fletcher was all about the tree until we plugged it in................he ran away whining!!!!!!!! At first I thought maybe he somehow got hurt so I went over to him he was all over me like HELP MOMMY. My husband and I were very puzzled. He calmed down quickly as soon as I took him into the kitchen. My husband unplugged the tree and started to clean up. I took Fletcher outside to potty he was completely normal then we went back in the living room. He was VERY slow to approach the tree (unlit) that got me thinking. He afraid of the tree lights. To test this theory, I walked over at hit the switch to the lights....................exact same reaction!!!!!!!!!!!! Fletcher is afraid of the lights in the freaking TREE Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I decided to just leave it off for now (its not done no ointments) We are going to decorate it tomorrow. I am hoping he will get used to it being up unlit first then maybe try the lights in the daytime? Here I am thinking how am I going to keep the dog from eating the Christmas tree and now he's afraid of it.
Totally funny, this puppy keeps me on my toes at all times!!!!!!!!!!!!!
