My Christmas Card Fail

We like to do a silly dog Christmas card each year. Let me tell you, this isn’t easy to do. We don’t have “easy” dogs who are obedient. They don’t cooperate at all, in fact. To top last year’s card, we wanted to add in Daisy our new cat. But, since we wanted Daisy to remain alive through the holiday season, we chose to leave her out of the photo. Annie is somewhat obsessed with her and has become quite a tenacious stalker. Mya, could care less about Daisy since she has realized this animal is like a squirrel with sharp claws.

So, I ordered a santa hat and an elf hat from Amazon… for dogs. Not my finest moment I will admit. But, I had hopes of a cute card. What I failed to realize is that with all the stress of work and social life and well, life in general…I was a little stressed for time. I ended up throwing together a picture with very little specialized dog training. We got an OKAY picture and I chose our card design. I was fairly happy with it. Though, I still felt like there was an empty space where Daisy should have been.  Can you see it too?

It’s a cute card. Except…when I got the cards in…I thought, who is May? Auto correct fail…Mya corrected to May. So that’s the story of my Christmas card fail. But, I still have dreams. Dreams of Daisy and Annie and Mya (aka May) posing as one big happy family… living in peace and harmony. Until then, I have Photoshop.
