Collecting Christmas tree ornaments is a great way to mark the passage of time. It is one of our favorite holiday traditions. My husband and I have collected ornaments for years. We collect ornaments that represent the places we have been and the changes in our lives. We have an ornament for our first dog. And one for each of our children’s first Christmas. We have an ornament to mark our dog’s first Christmas too. These ornaments remind us of the good times and some sad ones. Even so, we cherish our walks down memory each year as we put up the tree. We invite you to join us in this holiday tradition with these themed Dog Christmas Ornaments.
