Having guests over is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. But regardless of whether it’s co-workers, friends, or even family, there always seem to be those few houseguests who make themselves a little bit too comfortable. They ask about your dating life or how much you’ve been eating. With these folks in mind, it’s no competition that dogs can be the better behaved bunch around the pawlidays. They would never dream of pestering you with silly questions, comment on your cooking, or any of these other things hoomans tend to do. For instance…

1. Whenever they arrive they’re never in a Scrooge mood.
