It's always fun, isn't it, to look at the cards and decide which you like best.
Such a difficult choice, this time around.
I thought we had a clear winner, when I saw this one from our friends Margaret and Jeffrey.
Splendid, don't you think? A handsome fellow isn't he? And such a jolly neckerchief.
But then Gail opened the envelope postmarked Nottingham. Human Granny had earlier dropped a hint that she'd found a very special card for Gail.
And this was it.
A wire-haired fox terrier sitting in front of a bicycle!
Yes I can see why this image might be considered especially fitting for Gail.
The WFT guy even looks a bit like me, wouldn't you say? Personally I would have preferred it if he had been allowed to pose without any distracting objects in the background, but I guess at least the bike is behind and not in front of him.
Perhaps if I set the cards side by side it will be easier to select the 'winner'.
I wonder what my friends think?
Oh. Gail is telling me that if Human Grandad (who also had a November birthday) had read this he would have frowned and said: "Bertie, comparisons are odious"...
