Five minutes after my last post I went out into the garage to discover that our utility sink had overflowed. I was out there not even 10 minutes cleaning it up when I heard loud squeaking in the house. I came inside to see that Bear had obviously overcome his fear of the Christmas tree and opened two of the other dog toys!!!!!
Now the crazier part about this whole thing is that we have a bunch of Christmas presents under our tree (thanks to my wonderful mother in law, Jane, sending us presents for us to open on Christmas!!)!! Did he open any of those? Nope. He crawled behind those (because I put the dog toys in the very back) to pluck two of the remaining 4 wrapped plastic dog toys. Unbelievable.
