Did you send out Christmas cards this year? Every year I get a mixture of store-bought cards, photo cards and handmade cards from friends and family. The photo cards are usually my favorite, especially when they’re creative (i.e. include the dog in a fun way).

Photographer Peter Thorpe has found a way to do that, and has done so for over 20 years.

Thorpe’s annual card showcases his dog, who he dresses up in costumes to make the cards not only festive, but highly entertaining and unique. Thorpe’s current subject, Raggle, made her final card this year, according to Thorpe’s website. And what a card to retire with! Raggle looks adorable dressed as a mouse eyeing a yummy holiday cake, which happens to be perched on a giant mouse trap. Check out the image below, along with some others from Thorpe’s archives.
