The staff at Daycare 4 Dogs in South Manchester, England, dressed up the obedient dogs interested in partaking in the project and posed the pets in front of a custom-built stable — complete with a pup peeping out of the manger. The photoshoot took place in the dog daycare's sandpit. The 12 dogs — including a cocker spaniel, a beagle, and a Schnauzer — posed patiently for the camera on December 9. The daycare's patient pooches also dressed as Santa and his reindeer for a different snapshot. Daycare 4 Dogs owner Emma Billington said the 'iconic' nativity picture proves how incredible her staff and the dogs are — and she hopes it spreads some much-needed festive cheer.
