Seems like babies and toddlers aren't the only ones who are attracted to all things tinsel and baubles!

These gorgeous 8-week-old Labrador puppies, and their love of destroying Christmas trees, are proving to be quite a hit.

Perth resident Natalie told Gold Coast Mum her “adorable grandpuppies” are normally well behaved except for their love of chewing up the mail.
“I had to stop my grandson bringing it in as it's rather embarrassing having to ask for another Synergy bill as the puppies ate it,” she said.

Natalie said she owns both of the puppies’ parents and got more than she bargained for when the puppies were born.
“We had decided to wait another season so my girl Marlee was a little bit older (she is 3-and-a-half) but Buddy (he is almost 2) had other ideas.
“Two ultrasounds showed there was definitely 7 puppies, most probably 8. She had 11!”

Natalie says her family managed to keep the puppies all alive by taking shifts to rotate and then substitute bottle feeding them from five days old.
“Marlee did so well and, surprisingly, Buddy is the best dad and has helped Marlee from when the puppies were three days old and she was over trying to keep him away. He would help stimulate them to pee and poo, give them tongue baths like Marlee did and was there when one sooked quicker than Marlee could get to them and was already giving them kisses to calm them down.”

All together now... nawwwww! <3


“I have a friend who comes over to check on them during the day while I am at work and she rang me up the other day as they had trashed my house.
It looked like confetti as they had ripped apart their puppy pee training mats, chewed the TV cord (luckily it was turned off at the power point) and my 10-week old brand new blinds. Not to mention there were puppy poo prints all over my walls, glass doors and the floor. My poor friend was throwing up while she was cleaning up,“ Natalie told Gold Coast Mum.

 “I keep my big dogs’ food in a container and if the puppies get into the kitchen they run straight to the laundry to try to get their food. One of the puppies has worked out if he pushes in the right spot he can open the lid and has managed to fall in there twice!”

Natalie said most of the puppies are going to people who she will keep in contact with “as they have been coming to visit them since they were almost 4 weeks old to get the puppies used to them before they leave”. 

“My oldest son is getting one for Xmas and he is the naughty one. My son picked him from the minute he first saw him and they have the same personalities with their playful natures getting them into trouble so it looks like I will be puppy sitting a lot!,” Natalie said.
