We’re a week past Thanksgiving, so chances are by now, you’ve probably picked out your Christmas tree. Maybe even decorated it. But if you haven’t, here’s a festive new way to mark the occasion, complements of dog Scout.

See, Scout is no ordinary dog. Scout loves to balance things on his head, as seen on his Mom Jen Gillen’s Instagram account or on his website, Stuff on Scout’s Head.

The pit bull has had everything from a stack of DVDs to a wheel of brie placed atop his noggin, but we think this cluster of Christmas lights might be his best topper yet.

While we admit there isn’t much room for ornaments, there is now the added advantage of a Christmas decoration that’s mobile. Can a house covered in 500,000 lights go for a walk? We think not.
