Jonquil's Christmas Tree Part 1

Last year we took Halette with us to pick out our tree. So this year it was only right if we took Jonquil for the experience. The first tree lot was a bust. We just couldn't find the "right" tree. But, I thought we took some cute pictures so why not share. Then we moved on to the next tree lot.

 This tree lot had all types of trees. Also had an added bonus with the ground cover being some sort of crushed shells. (Note: We were extra careful to make sure Jonquil didn't eat any.) The shells where crunchy, smelly, and pokey. I can't say Jon didn't notice. How could she not? But she was very willing to walk down each isle. I was very proud of her. 

"Jonquil, Let's go!"

Jonny giving good eye contact. You can see the shells all over ground.

And the tree is chosen. Jarett and Jonquil posing in front of the winning tree. 

Me and Jonquil in front of the tree. Everyone was oooohing and awwwing over how cute Jonquil was posing for the photos. Suddenly I was swarmed with children petting her. She was also exposed to the loud sounds of the chainsaws. She definitely noticed the sounds but responded well  to me. Overall, I think that this helped with her curiosity once the tree was home. When Tenaya (golden) was a pup in training she wouldn't get her head out of the tree. Jonquil couldn't care less.
