Eko-locks And The Three Christmas Trees

To spiff up the background for our Christmas card Eko and I took a visit to a garden center a few miles north of us. Well, first I took Eko for a walk to relieve himself because I didn’t want to ruin Christmas by bringing Eko into a forest

To spiff up the background for our Christmas card Eko and I took a visit to a garden center a few miles north of us. Well, first I took Eko for a walk to relieve himself because I didn’t want to ruin Christmas by bringing Eko into a forest with a full tank.

The nose knows, so I let Eko lead the way and sniff out the best tree

Eko dove headfirst into the job of finding us a tree

We found one tree that was too big, one too small and then one that was just right

I did the heavy lifting and Eko acted as management.  Somehow this is how  the jobs always seem to get divided between us

Eko checked our stand for any leaks

Boom, we’re in business!  Now we just have to wait for the tree to soak up some water and then we can set up lights and have the perfect backdrop for our Christmas card.  If you haven’t picked up a tree yet, I highly recommend bringing your pup with you.  The customers and employees both got a kick out of Eko weaving through the trees and Eko obviously had a blast.

For our next trick we will hopefully keep Eko from knocking the tree over!

   

Comments for Eko-locks And The Three Christmas Trees

  1. We’re with Eko on the management requirement – humans need that slight nudge to get it right. A Christmas card is a very important moment after all and all the props have to be just so 😉

  2. …ahmmm Eko have you signed all the trees in the garden center?

  3. I love how in the last picture it looks like you and Eko are wearing the same shirt! hahaha

  4. What fun! It’s times like these that I wish that I wasn’t Jewish lol

  5. Eko looks like a great helper!

  6. It’s always a plus, having a canine unit in tow to supervise. I never leave home without the boss. (Bud, my shelter dog)

  7. That tree lot had some gorgeous looking loot. Glad to see Eko’s feeling better, I love the tree stand inspection…cute.

    Will–Love seeing that Eko gets to help pick out the family Christmas tree. My husband I have made it a tradition to bring our two black labs, Jasmine Tiana, with us to help get the Christmas tree. They love it!

    That looks fun! And Eko picked a really good tree 🙂 I bet he is going to have so much fun decorating!

  10. I can’t stop laughing at that last photo. Your blog is always a fun place to be.
