Dog Christmas Cards

If you’re a holiday traditionalist, then you enjoy the process of sitting down and writing Christmas cards.

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas card writing process is choosing the card itself, and this year, our theme is dog Christmas cards.

Many people enjoy displaying the Christmas cards that they receive as festive holiday decorations.

If you choose the right card, it may be noticed by several people — not just the person that you sent it.

If you're on a budget, a great and well-thought-out Christmas card can be a wonderful gift all on its own!

Sometimes, choosing a fun holiday card can be a daunting task; other times, it is extremely simple (when you have to choose one for a dog owner, for example).
