Top 10 Funny Festive Dogs in elf Costumes

This time of year I do feel sorry for dogs. Just the other day I was out walking my own dog when another one come up to us wearing a Santa costume! “He loves Christmas!” the owner told me, yeah right! He loves bones and sniffing, that is what dogs love. But there might be a point to it because what if all of Santa’s elves suddenly become ill? Well, it seems it wouldn’t be a problem because all he has to do is round-up this lot….

FACT: Elves are not very politically correct at all. As in folklore it is only the male elves that are ever seen because it is said that all the female elves stayed at home, underground and did the cooking and cleaning, never to see the light of day because it would kill them! Sounds more like slavery to me.

  2. Hey Russell … I couldn’t resist using one of the dog elf pics for my holiday party. Many thanks … so I hope you can stop by this weekend … and of course get a Grab Bag. Party stops about 90 minutes from the time of this comment (about 12:30 am, Eastern US) on Saturday.

  3. Very sweet, good natured dogs. I have a toddler and an infant and she is amazing with them.
    But pretty stupid, lol. So yeah, training a pug is pretty hard. She still doesn’t recall well after 8 years. It’s like a delayed reaction.

  4. Out of all those dogs only one looks really happy – and I suspect he’s the kind of dog that would look really happy no matter what his owner dressed him in 🙂 The costume on #1 is very clever!
