Brand New 2012 Christmas Card -- First Look!
Silkys can be such be such eager beavers. I thought -- wouldn't Santa prefer Silkys to those slow poke reindeer? The inside of the card reads:
"Why don't you use US this year?"
"Wishing you and yours' a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years."
Our Christmas Card Store is Open!
I know that it's crazy early to be even thinking about this. I just put away the fireworks, for goodness' sake! But the holidays creep up on us, and if you want to miss the lass minute rush, it really isn't too early to start thinking about Christmas. So we have a policy at About Small Dogs to go ahead and open up the Christmas store in September. Be my guest, check out your old favorites, enjoy this year's new card, start thinking about which ones you want to send this year.
You Asked For It, You Got It -- More Pictures!Information is all very well and good, and yes, it can be useful in the end, but don't you think that the fun part of any website are all the photos and drawings? Well I do, so I have been updating the breed pages with more photographs -- lots of them. As always, all the photos are taken by me personally (very occasionally I'm given photos from others'). We never buy stock photos and of course we never rip off others' prints.
So check these out -- and enjoy!
Revised Yorkie Page
The page is now loaded with Yorkie pictures.
The Case for Pure Bred DogsI found this article very interesting. The regular press has a definite bias when it comes to dogs and breeders; it's good to get a bit of a different perspective as well. I for one like to think for myself, and I can't do that if I only hear one side of the story. Here's the link: The Case For Pure Bred Dogs.
The Store at About Small Dogs -- We Are Open!We have prints for sale for the first time, and lots and lots of cards. Our Christmas card page is open now too, if you can stand looking at holiday stuff this early! Window shop all you want, but click on: The Store.
And if you see a portrait or comic from elsewhere on the website that you would like on a card, let me know. I'll see what I can do.
And as always, enjoy!
