Every Year, Photographer Sends Out Family’s Holiday Card Staring His Adorable Dogs

Christmas cards are a very proud tradition in a number of different homes. There are those who like to send out themed Christmas cards each year and we love to receive them. These cards can be a lot of fun, especially when the sender has established a certain theme that they enjoy maintaining. We’ve all seen the viral Christmas cards that were sent by families who found a funny story to tell.

But what about this photographer and his adorable Christmas cards? Peter Thorpe has been crafting specialty Christmas cards that star his dog for several years now. He first began the tradition in 1990. Paddy, his rescue terrier, was the star of these cards until he passed away after the 2002 edition was sent out. Raggle is another rescue terrier who has since taken his place.

We would be content with a few cute doggy photos, to be quite honest. Peter’s cards go above and beyond, though. Not only are they adorable, but they are also of the highest quality. Let’s take a closer look at Raggle’s greatest hits.


Here is Raggle trying his very best to follow the Yonder Star.


We think that this animal would be called a “dogkey”?


Dog roast, anyone?


There weren’t any dogs in the Bible! (at least as far as we can remember)
