Our first Golden Retriever that we named Tod came to us in 1996, and that was the first year we featured him on our Christmas card. It became a tradition with us. This year I was going to change that. I really liked the picture I posted yesterday, and considered using it instead of one with all the dogs. But being a traditionalist I felt pulled back to what I've done for so long--So, in my mind I created that 'perfect' holiday card. But the dogs had something else in mind. And despite my best efforts to make a reality of the picture I had imagined for this year, it soon gave way to something else, and the picture below was taken. I posted something similar to it a couple of weeks ago which was a contender as well. But even though Rudi and Wendy have their heads down, (it's practically impossible to get all the dogs to look in the same direction at once!) it was in my opinion, the best one to use as our 'family' Christmas card. What do you think?
