15 Christmas Critters To Warm Your Winter Heart!
We love Christmas. We love our pets as part of the family. If there is one thing that Christmas is about to many of us (other than celebrating the birth of Christ) it is about family. So it is only natural that we want to include animals in the holiday -- from tasty treats and presents to decking those halls and donning our gay apparel.
1. This New Collar Smells Funny
I think it is made of salad, but am I rockin' this gold bow or what?
2. Penguins In Perfect Harmony
It makes you wonder who first thought that putting clothes on one of these little Antarctic denizens was a good idea. It must keep Jay Leno up at night since this is one of his pet peeves.
3. Stylin' With Donkey Chic
You can just tell by the look on this face that he believes he is the descendant of the donkey Mary rode into Bethlehem. Or at least that is what he has been braying for this year.
4. You Light Up My Life
But seriously, next year YOU untangle the Christmas lights!
5. Santa Has A Whale Of A Time
Does this mean that the jolly old elf has forgiven Raffi for the back trouble he has had from delivering so many Baby Beluga CDs? At the very least the earworm finally stopped.
6. Giving Santa The Bird
Why shouldn't a parakeet have a little crazy Christmas cheer? Okay, so a tiny Santa hat doesn't exactly make for a partridge in a pear tree, but it sure is cute!
7. I Hope My Letter Gets To Santa In Time
And I hope he wasn't keeping track of the number of times I went through the trash and them blamed the cat.
8. I'm So Glad You Brought A Snack
I hope I'm not being too nosy. Carrots always taste like Christmas to me.
9. Some Bunny Loves Christmas
Are you sure it is Ho, Ho, Ho and not Hop, Hop, Hop?
10. Ooooo, More Christmas Cards!
Everyone loves to get cards, especially the squirrely ones. But go easy on the Christmas letter!
11. Just Horsing Around This Christmas . . .
. . . and hoping Santa will come to his senses and get some proper horses rather than those silly reindeer.
12. I Was Just Straightening The Angel, Honest!
So what if I played with a few ornaments on the way up. Sorry about the ones I broke.
13. Fleas Navidad!
Y próspero año nuevo! Woof! La Navidad se va a los perros!
14. Catmas Exhaustion Sets In
The Holidays can take their toll on anyone, especially if the human has been using someone's claws as a cutter for wrapping paper.
15. Silent Nighty-Night
And God bless us every one!
