Christmas is upon us and most if not all of us have our Christmas tree and decorations up. One needs to be watchful of their curious and playful Pugs. Ornaments dangling, tinsel swaying, lights twinkling makes for an interested toy in a Pug’s mind. As much as it looks cute watching your Pug play with the decorations and lights one must be aware that if you let them play with them once they will think a second or third time is fine. Glass Christmas balls if broken or swallowed can cause serious to even deadly consequences. Same as Christmas lights if a Pug was to keep chewing could potential lead to electrocution. Tinsel and other sorts of decorations can have some serious repercussions if your Pug is not carefully monitored. It is best to put a tree up so a Pug is not tempted or watch your Pug very carefully. Even a simple Christmas penguin decoration with garland and artificial lights on him can be hazard. So please monitor your Pug and do not encourage playing with the decorations for it only takes a moment for something to happen.
While you are cooking that delicious Christmas day meal one must be careful on what may drop onto the floor or what may be in a Pug’s reach. Grapes, onions, nuts, raisins, chocolate and such are dangers to deadly for a Pug. So be careful while cooking or even setting on the table for your guests to nibble on.
Guests help to celebrate the season whether they are family, friends, neighbor, co-workers, and such. But as these individuals are welcomed make sure they as well as your Pug are comfortable. Some Pugs get startled or too much to loud noises make Pugs uncomfortable. One could limit the number of people visiting or put your Pug in a “Pug” safe zone. Also, watch those little ones who think to sneak a taste here and there to the Pug is fun. That one little morsel could be costly to you. It is best to set ground rules for your Pug and your visitors.
Finally, the gifts: ribbons, bows, and paper are inviting your Pug to explore. Please use caution for the decorations on the gifts. Wrapping the food goodies and placing them under the tree early will still entice your Pug to search and want to find that smell of bacon, beef, chicken or those fruit cakes. ‘Tis the season to be joyful not regretful.
Happy Holidays to you, your family and your Pugs!!
