Cute Pug Christmas Cards and Ornaments

Pugs are so cute. Here you will find artwork of a cute pug that I saw while on a neighborhood walk. I've been this way quite a few times now and often see this friendly girl out with her owner. One day I even got to take her for a walk. I was amazed and impressed with how quick her pace was. I had to pick mine up a bit.

Her owner accepted my request to do some artwork of her. She wasn't actually wearing the Santa hat and bow, I painted and added those on after her friendly pose. Isn't she adorable; she looks so happy.


Here she is on a matching ornament; her happy face is printed on both sides.


Here's another cute pug, pictured with Santa and a deer in the woods. Do you think pugs should guide Santa's sleigh?


Here's another fun artwork of a cute pug looking up at Santa. What do you think this pug wants for Christmas?


Hope you have enjoyed my selection of cute pugs. If you'd like to check out more cute pugs, you can view pug Christmas cards and/or pug Christmas ornaments on zazzle.

If you like the first design, you can find matching Christmas items here:

Unique Personalized Christmas Ornaments

It's wonderful to have personalized ornaments at Christmas time; they serve as unique reminders of a first Christmas, whether it's the first one that the newly weds celebrated as a married couple, or for baby's first Christmas.

Here you will find ones with some unique designs that can be easily personalized online, with your added names, date, etc.

This first design features a painting of Santa's waist. There is a white fur look that goes around the middle, surrounded by and upper and lower band of red. The white is trimmed in light sky blue. There is a placeholder for your custom text in red, in the middle. The text can be easily customized for couples, baby, etc. The design is also printed on the back. The ornament can be further customized on the back if you like.


This next design features a candy cane heart on a frosty blended pink background. Names of a couple or baby can be typed in on the front; and there is a placeholder for the year on the back. This ornament is made of ceramic and is heart shaped.


A painting of poinsettias is arranged into a heart shaped pattern on this next ornament. It can be personalized with a monogram. The poinsettias are red and green, the background is white, and the initial is red and is written in a script type font. The white background can be customized. Monograms are also a great choice for newly weds.


This next design is perfect for peace lovers for grown children of the 60's. It features a peace sign on each side, (which are different colors), and a placeholder on each side for a name. The ornament is shaped like a tee shirt and the background is red. The peace sign on the front is purple and green; on the back it is green and blue.


This ornament is to be personalized with a photo. Christmas balls in red, green, purple, and blue, serve as the frame for a photo that you have stored in your computer. If the photo doesn't fit behind the Christmas balls, or you want the photo to take up the whole space, you can delete the Christmas balls image. There is a placeholder for your message in the area below the photo.


May you have a wonderful Christmas, holiday, and a happy New Year.
