This Pup Becomes Something Completely Different Every Year For Christmas

In 2014, she was an apprehensive mouse.

Here’s Raggle in a few of her most famous outfits.

Each year, Peter Thorpe, a Bristol, UK based photographer, continues with his adorable Christmas tradition of dressing up his pup for the family’s holiday card. Raggle, who is now elderly and has a weak heart, posed for her last photo this year, as her owner decided that it was time to retire. Thorpe has been photographing his pups for over 20 years now, and it’s become a unique family tradition. He makes all of his own sets from scratch, and never uses Photoshop to add any extra effects.

This was Raggle’s last photo shoot, and was only on set for a few minutes, long enough to snap a couple winning shots and send the senior pup back for a nap.
In 2013, she was a fat winter robin
