Took a few "Leave its" but so far Spencer has not touched or stolen anything from the Christmas tree. I hope I am not jinxing myself by posting this. It's pretty darn good considering the tree is in the spot that the dog beds used to be in. He had started to smell that Frosty the Snowman hanging on the door and I gave him another "Leave it" to let him know it is not his to play with.
Spencer, why now that the horse poop is frozen are you trying to eat it—because it's like a popsicle or because there are no bugs in it? Either way, the rules have not changed. "Leave it!" Yuck!
Hmmm, there was one present under the tree, a Jolly Ball for Scooter the horse. I had put it there kind of as a test to see if any of the dogs would touch it. I have no idea if it was Bruno or Spencer that chewed on the top of it. Spence was in his crate all night but was out in the morning while I was still upstairs and everyone else had already left for work and school. My first instinct is to blame the puppy (sorry, Spence), but honestly I don't know if it was him or Bruno. I left it under the tree. Going to see if I can figure out which dog is the guilty one.
