The cast of characters from left to right: Princey, a great Pyrenees, Teddy, a cocker spaniel, and Ming. This is a digital composite of four images. I photographed the pets individually against black velvet and then combined them together in Photoshop. Then I put the Christmas tree in the background. The lights were wrapped around each animal and the head pieces were put in place -- I was so surprised at their cooperation. I think they felt so silly, they just didn't know what to do!
