For the Past 20 Years, a Photographer Has Created Amazing Holiday Cards With His Dogs

For more than 20 years, Peter Thorpe has been dressing up his dogs to create festive holiday cards.

It began with his first dog Paddy and has continued with Raggle.

While absolutely adorable, this may be the last year for his cards. When discussing his latest card, “Little Nipper,” Thorpe writes on his website:

“The final performance for Raggle before her retirement. Elderly + with a weak heart, she still responds very well to tasty food so we lifted her on set for just a few minutes. Like a true pro, sat in position and gave a few head and eye line options before returning to her basket for another snooze!”
