Because I know for a fact that I could never persuade Eddie to wear a Santa hat without him ripping it to shreds as an affront to his dignity and masculinity, here is a sort of similar dog (well, same species and genus at least and vaguely similar colouring but a shorter nose) who is better at posing for the camera in a reasonably dignified manner.
I post this photo by way of saying:
HAPPY NEW YEAR
To each and every one of you out there…
I hope that you are all having a wonderful and relaxing day.
