    My son put this on his web site. Way too funny! Anyone with a pet knows how this works (or doesn't).

    I have taken to wrapping packages on the table. I also move all the chairs away so the four of them can't get up and watch/help.

    That is so funny!! While I wrapped, my two dogs sat right there and watched--but I think it's because I was at the dinner table, and they thought I might drop something for them

    LOL....very true! Reggie and Smokey unwrap their xmas presents every year, but they don't usually bug us while wrapping them. Nebo on the other hand.....I have to tie him up just out of reach of the wrapping paper...had him loose once, and he was just entirely too much "help!!"

    I'm so pleased that everyone enjoys this so much. The puppy in this grew up to become a CH/HIT/Belgian Biathlon/SAR (HRD)/multi registry obedience titled/ therapy dog and worked in a nursing home. She was my freestyle partner and a Canine Ambassador. The older pup sadly went to the Bridge at a young 4.5 years.
