Dear Abby - Vintage Easter Cards with Dogs

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a good week!  It is beautiful Spring weather here and I am looking forward to Easter weekend.  I thought you might enjoy sharing some vintage Easter cards today.  They all include dogs!

This is one of my favorites!  A sweet puppy sits outside of a cute storybook cottage on this vintage Easter card.


I hope you enjoyed these vintage Easter cards, and I wish you a wonderful holiday weekend!

Next week I will begin my new series about pet collectibles.  If you collect any pet themed items, I would love to include your pictures at the blog!  Just let me know (with your email) in the comments.  Thanks!

Love,

Abby, these are such lovely vintage Easter cards. I love sending and receiving greeting cards. What a happy Easter post! It is interesting to see how the dachshunds are pictured in older days. The breed look has really changed over the years.

Thanks for visiting!

Barbara, I agree with you -- the look of dachshunds has really changed over the years.

Love,
Abby
