While decorating the house, Isabella perched and watched with baited breath. She was watching for anything dangling or low enough to attack.
She was very successful in stalking and taking down parts of our Christmas tree. We low a couple of ornaments to Isabella this year.
Thankfully, all the glass and fragile ornaments were put very high on the tree.
The tiny pieces that make up my manger had to be on some surface she couldn’t get to. The top shelf of the bookcase was my only option. Seriously, she perches on everything.
This manger came from my mom so I have a few special pieces included. When my mom was young she traveled with her parents. One piece in this collection is a hand carved model of Barry the rescue Saint Bernard she bought when she was in Switzerland.
I like to think there was a huge slobbering dog at the birth of Jesus.
