Dear Abby: Merry Christmas, With Vintage Dog Illustrations

Dear Friends,

Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season to you!  Momma and I are planning to take a blogging break for a couple of weeks, but I wanted to share a few vintage dog photos (all with a festive Christmas theme).

This Calling All Girls magazine cover from 1958 features a very helpful dachshund wrapping gifts with her person.


I love this very looooooooong dachshund on a cute vintage Christmas card.


This dachshund is helping two children shop.  (And he even has a cute sweater!)


This cute little terrier dog is helping Santa Claus make a Christmas list.


This 1940's vintage Christmas card is red, white, and blue -- and three little terriers wave American flags.


A cute little dog delivers Christmas cards in this illustration.


Scotties on parade!  What is not to love about this?  Scotties were big in 1940's illustrations, so this is probably a 1940's era Christmas card.
 

I hope your holidays are happy and bright!  I've enjoyed visiting with you this year, and look forward to catching up again in 2017!

Merry Christmas!

Love,

Abby xoxoxo

I always love when you find vintage doggy images to share with us. I am especially fond of the dachshunds, although I love all dogs. I notice that the dogs in these illustrations are all so helpful. I wonder where I have gone wrong with mine ;)?

Thanks, all! I really appreciate you stopping by.

Barbara, my Momma says she would like it if I would be helpful like those dogs, too. Maybe I can wrap some Christmas gifts this year?

Love,
Abby
