The Pups Pick a Christmas Tree

Thanksgiving is over, and that means one thing: Christmas decorating can begin! Last weekend, we made it out to a u-cut farm to find our tree, with a bonus whippet in tow.

We ended up at Furrow Farm in Hillsboro, which was close to home, fairly priced, and best of all, dog-friendly! Rigby’s running buddy Lincoln was staying with us, so we definitely wanted to bring them both along.

While we searched for the perfect apartment-sized tree, the dogs had a blast checking out all the new piney smells, and both found some choice sticks to chew.


Some dogs might be wary of the tree baler or chainsaws; have treats handy to build confidence around strange new things.

Fun fact: Oregon is the largest producer of Christmas trees in the country! If you want to cut your own this season, check out these pet-friendly farms:
