This year, we went without hats and jingle bell collars.  The dogs found this confusing.

Bar isn't sure where to look.

Lou started to make faces.

Wick did not approve of the shenanigans.

Rex busted out his best come hither look.

Finally, we got it together.  Merry Christmas from Bar, Rex, Lou and Wick!

Merry Christmas! 

 

It looks like Bar was the one most missing hats and bells, Lou looked Like "Not another one, you've taken so many already."  And Wick was playing adult to this group of teenagers.  Nice pictures!  I can't even manage to get one picture of one Border Collie, much less four.

Wonderful.

 

The final card is perfect, but the succession with accompanying comments is priceless. :D

Cute story! I liked that as much as the final card photo (which was great too).

Really liked the commentary - Lou has a gift for comedy, and Rex might need his own centerfold.

 

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I'm glad.  I hope you have a Merry Christmas and I hope that Boots is working hard to show you she can be more border than pyr.   :)

I knit them.  Basically, it's just a tube knit in the round, then some short rows for the head, and the ears and antlers were knit separately. It was supposed to be for a friend's whippet but I think it's miles too big for her elegant little head. I need to find a large black greyhound.  :)

Very creative. Publish the pattern on Ravelry. I'll buy it!  And I think that Bar is a great model, but a sighthound head is certainly elegant.
