Holiday photo greeting cards allow you to show off the loved ones in your life. But what if your humans shy away from the camera? Or perhaps only furry family members fill your home. Not to worry: Plenty of holiday photo cards feature a dog-centric theme.

Here are five favorites -- some funny, others simply punny -- and an excellent e-card for those who procrastinate like I do.

All of the above retailers have human-centric photo cards specific to Hanukkah, too. Any could easily star your furry family members.

Tips for creating and ordering holiday photo cards online:

  • Gather a few favorite photos of your dog or dogs, then choose cards that complement the images. If you lack design skills, simply look at the card as shown on the company's website and follow the designer's lead. For example, the "Come! They Told Me" card shows the perfect match between photo and theme. Play around with different combinations until you find a favorite one.
  • Only use high-quality photos with the minimum resolution recommended by the card company. Also, reject photos with blur or red eye.
  • Get started ASAP. Factor in delivery time of the cards, as well as sending time to the recipients. Also pad the timeline for procrastination on your part.

Speaking of procrastination: I rarely get my greetings in the mail before the end of the holiday season. If you also wait until the very last minute, consider using an e-card company such as Petzooba. I found more than a few I would personalize, including this fun one that puts your pups in a music video and also on the cover of Modern Dog magazine:
