The time I tried to put Santa hats on my dogs

Through the wonders of the internet, I’ve met and become good friends with a group of women. Through the years we’ve become a close knit crowd and around Christmas/Chaunakah/Holidays/Festivus we exchange cards.

I’m not a person that usually sends out cards but for some reason I decided hey why the hell not.

I set out to make the most kitschy card ever. I was going to have Santa hats, fake fireplace, and tree with presents. Perhaps Ginger would wear an angel costume.

Then I realized how insane that would be and opted on just the hats.

Have you ever tried to put a Santa hat on a dog? More importantly a psycho puppy?

Santa hats were a no go.

Instead we headed outside and I commenced to try and get at least a decent picture of the three of them.


There’s always one window licker.


And this one wasn’t bad despite Ginger looking like a ray of sunshine or part of the concrete.

Then I got a great idea. What if I took a picture of me and the dogs. That’d be cute right?



I sat down and was immediately attacked by two black labs who wanted nothing more than to shove nasty tennis balls in my face in the hopes that I would throw them.
And where is Ginger in all this? Sitting mere inches from the left side of the photo there with a look of utter embarrassment and disgust.

So as you can see my photo session didn’t go as planned. But it might have brought forth one of the best Christmas cards in recent times.

I present to you- my Christmas card.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas season and a fantastic New Year!
