We modified Christmas. We got a 4' tree and set it up on our entertainment center!

Yeah, you can forgo the train.....But being a native Baltimorean, ya gotta have a Christmas Garden Ah well, no we havn't for years.....but the tree on the box worked really well for us. an easy enough project and you can hide your wires, anchor down the stand etc.

We've never missed a tree....too magical for the kids! [and they still talk about the various "falling down" events with the tree....a fun childhood memory for them [we always had tree catastrophes until the year we got the heavy stand with the spike in the middle then they were history]

I'm a firm believer that the puppy molds to your life not you to the puppy's?
If the hassle is not worth it then maybe a small tree on a large table?

Ok what they said!
Also three years old is a magical time for a child and Christmas there should never be a question of tree or no tree!

I have always used real trees. I hang the fragile ornaments up high and leave soft ornaments and tinsile near the bottom to avoid the wagging tail issue!

No I agree.. my post should have read, should I skip putting up our BIG tree in it's normal spot.. and put up the smaller one in a different room.

Sorry kids..
NO TREE: the puppy will chew it.
NO SANTA: the puppy will bite him.
NO PRESENTS: the puppy will eat them.
NO SNOWMAN: the puppy will bark at him.

.. but ..

If you're good.. you can pet the puppy while he's sleeping!

haha.

Or you can hang the tree like a regular hanging plant. This is my Mama Xmas Tree - hangs in the bedroom & has Hawaiian theme (her favorite). If the cats are atop the dresser & reach for the tree, it sways just enough to make them pull back. Works the same for the dog. This was a 6-ft tree, so we didn't have to have a tiny tree just cause of the critters.
