christmas has (already) gone to the dogs

Or at least around here. More accurately, it'll go to the dogs in about two weeks. The response from my PETraits fundraiser for SCARS has been very good, so following along in the vein of our furry companions I completed 5 illustrations for this year's batch of Christmas cards. The cards should arrive by the end of the month and then will be available for purchase at Transcend Garneau in Edmonton, Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, and by contacting me directly (in sets of 5, but you can purchase individual cards at the other two aforementioned locations.)

The original illustrations are for sale. Proceeds from the sale of Christmas cards are not included in the PETraits fundraiser, for those curious.
