Happy Grrristmas!

I first photographed my dog for a Christmas card in 2002 under duress from my partner Seema. However, we have managed to find something different to do with a dog on a Christmas card every year since. Our first dog Leo died in 2013 when my very young son told me “It’s ok daddy, we’ll get another one that looks just like it.” And so we did, our second rescued Jack Russell Terrier joined us in 2014. Although Ruffles looks like Leo she doesn’t share his total all-out confidence. She is very timid and unfortunately, she is affraid of the camera. As you can imagine this makes taking her photo a bit more of a challenge, hence the heavy use of photoshop in the last few years.
