I have two Santa hats hanging on the top post of my kitchen chairs - something we've done for years now. Last year Gypsy didn't seem to care about them but this year is so different. Now that she is 2, she barks at every little new thing that wasn't there before.  So we have alot of barking with all the holiday decor everywhere.  Funny thing is she barks as if to tell us "Hey this wasn't here yesterday"....
I've even resorted to taking the item down and letting her smell it -sometimes it works and sometimes she just keeps barking at it until I put it away.
When this hat fell off the chair the other day she took it as if it was a new play toy - and so it became hers- just like a coveted "baby".  I can't imagine our home without her, as you never know what will happen next.


  1. This picture is adorable! One of our Westies has to let us know when there is something new in the house. So fun!

  2. YAY, a photo of Gypsy! Love it and the story!
