Since this was Monty's first Christmas with us, we made sure to concentrate on making it a good day for him. After all, this is only one of the two days each year the pups will get to shred paper without being in trouble! They need to enjoy it! (The other is their birthday/Gotcha Day.)
Since Mom had a busy day already, visiting her Mom in rehab and feeding the horses she needed some nourishment before starting the festivities. Sam was most dismayed by the delay.
It's Christmas, Mom!
Monty on the other paw, has a unique way to beg. He knows we know he is there, so he is not concerned he will be missed if any crumbs happen to be passed around...
Monty didn't quite understand how to open the presents, but I did realize I made a major mistake this year. No more shiny paper for Monty! He spent most of his morning chasing the reflections from the paper on the wall.
Although, he also seemed to be pleased by our choices of squeaker filled toys!
Sam seemed pleased that he got to open every one's presents, not just his own!
We all had a good Christmas and hope all of you did too! Monty definitely seems happy with his first Christmas with us!
