Koda and the Christmas ornaments

This happened yesterday, Koda sure is smart, he knows at 9 months not to mess with mommy’s stuff, the human kid on the other hand….


Andy just called, he reports:

“Andrew and Koda were playing ball together and he was laughing so hard, then all of a sudden, I hear bang, bang —- this 10x. I thought it was just them playing with the ball, Koda comes up to me with THAT worried look- I checked on Andrew and he has been throwing your christmas ornaments on the floor, he thought it was the funniest thing in the world. He was laughing so hard. Koda didn’t think it was funny, and he knows it was wrong so he came and ‘told me’.”
Me: You know I will kill  you when I get home right? You know I have been collecting those HAND BLOWN glass ornaments that’s made in Germany  for years!!!??
Andy: Why me? It was Andrew who did it!
Koda + 1
Andrew and Andy -1 or dead in an hour!
I lost over 20 ornaments, when I got home, I asked Koda who did it, he looks at Andrew.  It was hilarious.
Oh and Andy is buying me a whole new set of ornaments. 😀

    Hilarious! Josie, you must remember—the punishment should fit the crime. Therefore, I think that Andy should be flying you to Germany so that you can pick out your new ornaments yourself. That would teach him for not watching the kid. 😉

    I laughed and laughed when I read this….but if they were my personal carefully-collected and cherished ornaments….well I have to admit it would not be so funny. I will see if I can get some new ones for you my next trip to Germany. Is there a particular type you collect?

    That Andrew…what a stinker! Koda you are a good boy.

    Thankfully, it was just the red and gold colored ornaments that were broken, my favorite ones are on the higher part of the tree.

    Koda is such a good boy. I can’t believe he went to Daddy and told on Andrew, too funny!

    He made it to me by cooking pot roast, the house smelled so yummy when I got home. 😀

    ROTFLMAO. I think I need to borrow Koda to teach his sister some manners. Her motto is: “If I can reach it, I must find out if it is edible or playable and if I can’t reach it, I must find a way to reach it to find out if it is edible or playable.”

    We brought in our living tree and decorated it. I guess I should never have told her it was her tree. She is taking it much to literally.She not only steals ornaments but also digs in the pot!

    Good thinking Josie, keeping the special ones at the top of the tree. Let me know when you have your plane tickets. Father’s can not be trusted to watch children (or Puppies!!). Libby barked at the 3 foot santa standing at the bottom of the stairs. She is trying to figure out the tree, sniffed the boxes w/the lights and ornaments and then watched me decorate. Her fascination is the musical snow globe that turns on it’s base. She circles the coffee table watching it play. I think she is waiting for it to run across the room so she can chase it.

    In true Alta Tollhaus style, Pieka is obsessed with the water in the tree stand. It’s clearly better than any other water. “Mmmmm….piney!”

    Love this story!!! But you forgot to tell them how Koda was “hiding” upstairs when you came home — getting as far away as possible from the scene of the crime!

    That is one smart dog. He knows which side his bread is buttered.

    You crack me up…
    You all should switch to a Hannuka bush… there is no water at the bottom of it… LOL
