Christmas Card, 2011

After receiving our Christmas card, a co-worker was adamant that it was the best she'd ever received...and then she chuckled. 

My first thought was, "Oh, no".  I was just positive that one of our flies was unzipped or Izzo's boy parts were being inappropriate or something else was mortifyingly wrong with the picture. And then I thought, "Oh, no...we sent this to our grandmas." 

Luckily for us, and for our grandmas, there was nothing "wrong" with the card. But, there was something...

Christmas, 2011

Take a look at the picture.  Look close. Does anything strike you as odd? Curious? Look at Faith's hair. Now, look at Scout's. Look at Rob's face shape. Compare it to Izzo's. 

Now, take a closer look. Notice you can see bling on both of the boys (Izzo's collar and Rob's ring). You can't see any on the girls.  

Do you see it? Do you see the eerie similarities between pet and owner? Between Rob and Izzo?  And then Faith and Scout?

Our little dogs are a part of our lives, an important part of our family. We love them and we love that they kinda look like us...or do we kinda look like them? 

So, maybe the similarities aren't quite as obvious as this:

Or as creepy as this:

 But our co-worker enjoyed it and we hope you do too!
