The Reindogs

Back in November, Dr. Cathy King (founder of WorldVets), posted this photo on my Facebook page. This adorable and funny dogs-wearing-reindeer-hats photo was subsequently posted eleventy more times by other friends.

I loved it, and took it on as a personal challenge — to knit reindeer hats for my two Greyhounds, Argos and Purl.

It started out innocently enough.

Purl wasn’t so sure.

I did the neck part first, followed by the hood, then the ears, and finally the tiny reindeer horns.

At last they were ready! A reindeer hat for Purl, and one for Argos too.

Argos remembered back in the pre-Purl days of 2010, when he had a different reindeer costume.

Purl came around soon enough though, realizing that this could be fun.

They took their new roles seriously. Flying around the world, they added a little Greyhound speed and power to Santa’s sleigh.

And then, in a blink of an eye, it was all over. Back to regular life.
