    2. Retrieve tape back from puppy.
    3. Remove scissors from older dog's mouth.
    4. Open box.
    5. Take puppy out of box.

    11. Take scissors from older dog & sit on them.
    12. Remove puppy from box & put on lid.
    13. Take tape away from older dog.
    14. Unroll paper.
    15. Take puppy OFF box and tape together part that is now chewed.
    16. Cut paper being careful not to cut puppy's foot or nose that is getting in the way as it "helps".
    17. Let puppy tear remaining paper.
    18. Retrieve tape again.
    19. Wrap paper around box.
    20. Chase puppy & take wrapping paper from its mouth.
    21. Tell older dog to fetch the tape so he will stop stealing it.
    22. Take scissors away from puppy.
    23. Take tape older dog is holding.
    24. Quickly tape one spot before taking scissors from older dog & sitting on them again.
    25. Fend off puppy trying to steal tape & tape another spot.
    26. Take bow from older dog.
    27. Go get roll of wrapping paper puppy ran off with.
    28. Take scissors from older dog who took them when you got up.
    29. Give empty paper roll to older dog to hold so he stops licking your face.
    30. Remove puppy from present & hurriedly slap soggy tape on to hold the paper on.
    31. Take now soggy bow from puppy & tape on since the sticky stuff no longer sticks.
    32. Take pen from older dog, address tag & affix while puppy tries to eat pen.
    33. Grab present before puppy opens it & put it away.
    34. Clean up mess puppy & older dog made playing tug-of-war with remnants of wrapping paper.
    35. Put away rest of wrapping supplies & tell dogs what "good helpers" they are.

    I can't say Phoebe has ever helped wrap a pressie, but she's a champion at unwrapping them.
    It is a huge coincidence that man's best friend wags his tail rather than his mouth.

    Thank You!

    I am happy that so many people like my silly bit of doggerel. FYI-This was originally titled Wrapping Presents Assisted by Belgians. I wrote this in 1997 after having my then 15 month old & 3 month old Belgian Sheepdogs helping me wrap presents. I'm rather stunned at how a bit that I wrote just to share with my fellow Belgian fanciers has taken off and is enjoyed by so many. Both dogs mentioned here have been gone for several years but this still brings fond memories of their shenanigans when they were youngsters.
