Dog Sayings for Christmas Cards

Sending out a cute Christmas card is one of the most classic traditions during the holiday season. When you receive a card in the mail, you know it’s been sent with love. Make your card a heartfelt surprise with a silly Dog saying for Christmas cards inside!

You can even go the extra mile and make your own cards this holiday season. The Christmas card can be from your whole family, including your pup with this fun trick. Put a little pet-friendly paint on the bottom of your pup’s paw and press it onto the card! You can use their paw-print as a card decoration and incorporate, or you can use their paw as their signature.

  • Make sure you leave out two treats by the fireplace tonight for Santa Paws, you don’t want him digging in your garbage like last year.
  • This truly is the Furr-iest season of all, and it’s all paw-ssible because I have paw-esome fur-iends like you!

  • We had our wonderful pup try his paw at decorating some cookies; talk about a pugly batch! Anyway, maybe stay away from that plate of gingerbread men; you’ll know it when you see it.
