This year, our darling husky revealed that not only could he suss out which presents were his (he has had a long-standing habit of seriously examining his stocking every half-hour for days leading up to the big event), but he could also open his own presents. Like, not the “om nom nom I will eat everything including the wrapping paper and ribbon” present-opening, or the “om nom nom I will destroy all of these packages indiscriminately” present-opening, but like “hey, this is totally a bone, let me carefully manipulate it with my paws and teeth until the treat has been revealed!” present-opening, which is both adorable and a little bit terrifying.  What am I here for, if not to tease you about how slowly I’m opening your delicious gift?

Sigh… they grow up too fast.
