Bristol-based photographer, Peter Thorpe, sets the tone for the holidays each year by creating a character, costume and set for his dog’s photoshoot. The resulting pictures get sent out to friends, family and clients in the form of holiday greeting cards.
The tradition started 20 years ago with his dog Paddy, and continues into the present with Raggle. Unfortunately, this is probably Raggle’s final time participating in the Christmas tradition– next year we might find a new set of paws continuing her role.
This year’s creative picture features Raggle as a mouse considering a festive dessert atop a mousetrap. Previous years have seen Raggle and Paddy in the guises of Ebenezer Scrooge, a camel, penguin, robin, turkey dinner, as well as the angel topping a Christmas tree.
