The world’s cutest Christmas Dogs, Raggle and Paddy, get immortalized in a new book, Bark! The Herald Angels Sing, from Peter Thorpe. The hardcover book features the photographer’s family Christmas cards for the past 27 years in which his adorable dogs were center stage.

Bark! The Herald Angels Sing

I introduced you to both the lovable mutt muses of UK photographer Peter Thorpe back in 2014 when I featured his series of photographs called Christmas Dogs.

Paddy as a Angel Tree Topper for the 2000 Christmas card

Thorpe has been dressing up his obliging dogs – first Paddy, then Raggle – every year for their family Christmas Cards. Both dogs’ patience and star quality combined with Peter’s photography, his own handmade props and no Photoshop have made these cards cute, clever and of course, Christmas-y.

The new book ‘Bark! The Herald Angels Sing’, published by Countryman Press, is a hardcover bound collection of the images I shared with you of Peter’s Christmas card project, featuring their 2 dogs.
