I wasn't to sure what it was to begin with so I did my "sneak up to carefully and check it out" walk. It smelt different and trust me - I sniffed it ALL over, but I figured eventually it was okay and that 'other-mommy' could open it - ONLY she didn't!!!!!
She says I have to wait until Christmas - can you believe that!!!!!! Doesn't she know dog years are so much longer and that means we have holidays much more often - in fact I am sure today is one of our doggie Christmases. Personally I have many such Christmas days throughout the year:) I even gave her my "big sad eyes" look but to no avail. Hoomans can be so stubborn sometimes.
