I woke up this morning wondering what happened to the dining room chairs. Oh, and where are the kitchen stools. Then, I figured it out.

Monday I came home from work and Molly the black lab was getting a tail chewin'. Seems that she decided that an ornament off the newly put up Christmas tree would make for a good 'time passer' a good gum massage mechanism  while the humans were at work. Yep. She was in the dog house.

After two days of 'ornament destruction' my wife had obviously had enough.

While some might banish their dog to the garage or the kennel, she opted for a make shift physical barricade.

Side note. Our home might not be featured in Better Homes and Gardens, but the ornaments appear to be safe.
