Black Labrador and Dachshund Christmas Cards by Charlotte Gale

Stanley didn’t have the best start in life. He was hit by a car at only a few months old and spent five weeks in hospital, including Christmas Day. However, he was a very brave little sausage and thanks to the amazing skills of celebrity vet Noel Fitzpatrick, he went on to model expertly for my Dachshund Christmas cards.

They say that you should never work with children or animals. However, I photograph both and luckily Pepper the Black Labrador was also on her best behaviour for my photo shoot!

Christmas Cards for Businesses

Polio has no cure. It maims or kills children, mainly under the age of five. It is now endemic in just three countries, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. Since the campaign was launched 28 years ago, the results have been astounding – from 176 countries down to the three – but we still need to eradicate the virus completely. Polio is easy to prevent by vaccination – just £1 will protect five children for life.  The latest figures for this year (up to 21st August) are 192 cases worldwide, of which only 71 are in the endemic countries but 108 are from an outbreak in Somalia.
