SANTA'S LITTLE HELPERS

SANTA'S LITTLE HELPERS 
Here's Spanky and Mimzy looking extremely uncomfortable in their Christmas outfits a couple of years ago. Needless to say, Santa got no cookies and milk from them. As a matter of fact, they were so put off by this blatant display of holiday commercialism that they both decided to perpetrate wardrobe malfunctions and wear their hats upside down like little red beards until we managed to finally stop laughing and release them from the shame of it all. If it hadn't been for the Yummy Chummies and squeaky weasels in their stockings Christmas morning, I fear they might have abdicated Christianity altogether.

    1. Sometimes I think I take waaaayyyyy too much pleasure making my dogs look foolish. Just when I think I really should be painting something serious like a vase or a landscape or someone's Great Aunt Thelma, I find another cute dogs-in-costumes picture and I'm gone.
