Doggone Cute: 11 Dogs in Holiday Hats (Photos)


I admit that I enjoy receiving holiday cards with adorable puppies and dogs more than I do those with children. Is that terrible?

The fact is that I just cannot resist a cute pup dressed up for the holidays.

Last year, we dressed up our black lab, Django and our chihuahua, Hayley for Santa. The results were sickeningly cute. Having been there, done that with the kids’ holiday photo cards for years, we made some doggie cards last year.

As I got to thinking of what we would do with our pups this year in terms of pictures, I realized how instantly I can become engrossed in holiday doggie photos, and decided to do a round-up of dogs waiting for Christmas and Hanukkah.

Decked out in their favorite hats (and other gear), they are pretty gracious models (and I did already say how hideously cute they were, right?).

Yep, that's Django's pic from a few years ago. Now, what to do for this year?

I make a great holiday card, don't I?

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper.

Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian. To prevent some of the discomfort that so many pets experience from common diseases, the place to start would be by checking them regularly for developing problems.” Check out the full list here at Babb
