Actual poses are good, if your hound is willing to sit for a photo (Walmart can take your photo and make cards very affordably). One year I managed to get antlers on Moe for a photo but he was very obviously NOT happy about it. Another time I tried to put a Santa hat on him but he kept trying to eat it - I settled for a shot of him and Tally standing near my pointsettias (he wasn't really helpful for that pose either - I just waited for him to stand still, put a poinsettia near him and quickly took the shot.) Tally wasn't easy either - she goes belly-up and pees when I try to pose her but she will sometimes stay where I put her. Some people are quite clever with computers and embellishing photos, and they manage to insert things onto thier dogs that would otherwise be impossible. Some cards are completely handmade or photocopies of hounds on paper folded into a card. Still others are the store-bought type (some with Basset themes, some just ordinary holiday cards), some with photos, some not. There are very elaborate cards and also very simple cards. They are ALL unique. And whatever the type of card, they are a joy to recieve. I'm sure you'll come up with something that suits you...
