I just received my order of the three different dog Xmas cards and I wanted to say how much I love them. I knew they would be beautiful but they far exceeded my expectations. I know my clients, friends and family will love receiving them. As I am in Canada and with the exchange rate the cards were more than I initially wanted to spend on Xmas cards but they were so worth it. Not only because they are so unique and beautiful but because it supports an independent artist and how part of the proceeds are donated to charity.

I send a card to all the families who have had the puppies I have bred over the years and always try to find some hound ones. It's always difficult trying to find nice ones that don't cost a forture and are not soppy! Yours are great!

More about Hearing Dogs & The Cinnamon Trust

Dog Lover Christmas Card | The Enlightened Hound

The Hearing Dogs charity trains clever dogs to help deaf people. Their dogs alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives, and can even save them.

But the clever canines do so much more than alert their recipient to sounds. Deafness can be a very isolating disability. A hearing dog can give a deaf person a newfound sense of independence and confidence now they have a loyal companion and a true friend by their side.

Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity which seeks to relieve the anxieties, problems, and sometimes injustices, faced by elderly and terminally ill people and their pets, thereby saving a great deal of human sadness and animal suffering.

A national network of over 17,000 community service volunteers provide practical help when any aspect of day to day care poses a problem – for example, walking the dog for a housebound owner, fostering a pet whose owner faces a spell in hospital or providing long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. This means that owners have peace of mind that their beloved companion will have a safe and happy future.

We're going to use your donation to improve our agility play course. We need an extra big tunnel so Lola (Pyrenean Montain Dog) can get through easily and some new jumps, which everyone enjoys - whether they jump over, squeeze under or just knock down
