Holiday Cards We Love, Starring the Pets

It’s a holly jolly tradition this time of year to send out a holiday card – whether the old-fashioned paper cards sent by snail mail or the electronic variety shared via email or social media.

Thankfully the practice of including a long letter updating everyone on the happenings of each family member seems to be on the decline, but millennials are continuing the card exchange tradition, even as they update it by relying more on electronic card giving, using tech to create customized cards or paying someone else to make handmade cards on sites like Etsy.

One trend we love seeing is the increasing inclusion of the family pets, either as part of a family photo or even as the focal point for the annual greeting. Here are some of our favorite pet-centric holiday cards (or photos that would make great cards), many of which were submitted by customers of Healthy Paws.
