Hi everyone. It's Max with a story to tell. On Wednesday a friend of Mommy and Daddy's came over to visit and brought a beautiful poinsettia plant. Mommy had a silk one that I had already checked out and ignored it after that. Well, I decided to check out the new plant as soon as I saw it. Mommy was watching me and was right next to me. I was sniffing it only and then all of a sudden I had the urge and tore off half the leaf and ate it before Mommy could stop me. Mommy was freaking out. She was so worried about me. But I didn't get sick and I'm fine. Mommy now has the plant in another room with the door closed so I can't get in there. After it warms up a little more Mommy will put the plant out on the front porch and will later plant it outside in the front yard.
Today I scared both myself and Mommy. I was sniffing around the round tree in the music room next to the shelf I like to lay on. Mommy didn't see me pull off a plastic leaf and try to chew it but she heard me acting funny and chewing real hard. Mommy came and opened my mouth and was able to get the leaf out of my mouth before I swallowed it. I now know I could have choked on it if Mommy wasn't right there. Mommy once again sprayed this orangy stuff all over the tree and I don't like the smell of it so the tree will be safe for another day anyway. I don't know what comes over me. I'm real good for a while and then I become devilish all of a sudden. I guess I just don't realize until after I've done something stupid that I could have been hurt or gotten really sick or even died. I'm glad that didn't happen. I wouldn't want to miss out on Santa Claws. I hope I can behave now for the rest of the season. Mommy watches me as best as she can but of course she can't be with me every minute or stay up all night with me. I usually sleep with Mommy for about 4 or 5 hrs, so at least I'm behaving then. I like to sleep right up against Mommy's back and then she can't roll over on me.
That's my tale of 2 days. Thanks for reading this blog. Merry Christmas. Hope Santa Claws is good to everyone.
