Christmas Ornaments in the Dog Park

As the Christmas season approaches it is nice to remember our pets but keep in mind, some Christmas ornaments are not appropriate for outdoors.  Avoid ornaments that can shatter and get stuck in paws, toxic paints that drip off when ornaments are wet, items that are sharp, tinsel and garland, or items that birds and other wildlife may mistakenly swallow.  Please, think of the wildlife and pets when choosing to leave a seasonal memento.
