This time of year my Rye-guy goes gaga for presents. He's a like a little kid. If you bring any packages into the house without allowing him to inspect them, he immediately thinks it must be a present for him and will sit and whine at the spare bedroom's closet door (assuming that's where you hide your presents) because he knows its in there.
Trying to wrap gifts with Riley around is also a feat. He's only a foot tall, so keeping things out of his reach isn't really the issue. The issue is that he cries as if you are hurting him the entire time you are wrapping something outside of his reach. He's mister impatient when it comes to Christmas. He wants a present and he wants it now. If you even say the word "present" he gets all anxious and trots off to stand guard outside the spare bedroom's closet door. Yep, he's one smart cookie and a real pain in the you-know-where sometimes. But I love him and watching him open presents is worth the aggravation. Here's a video from last year:
Anyone else have a dog, cat, ferret, etc that loves to open presents?
