Pugs in Sweaters

By Shannon Stacey, author of HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST

Pugs are funny little creatures, aren’t they? My heroine’s sister has a pug in my holiday novella, HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST, and Atticus was supposed to be a minor secondary character. Well, if you’ve ever known a pug, you can guess how that went. I was totally in love with the little guy by the time I was finished writing the story

It didn’t hurt that, while writing a particular scene in the novella, I went searching for photos of pugs in Christmas sweaters for a little inspiration. Nothing lifts the spirits like animals in cute costumes, but pugs in sweaters are especially adorable. I bookmarked a few to share with you!

This little cutie might be going to Grandma’s house for Christmas.

A sweet girl in the snow.

Double the cute!

This one might be my favorite. The sweater is perfect!

And this technically isn’t a pug in a sweater, but I had to share it. That hat!

In keeping with the cute pets theme, what’s your favorite holiday animal? Rudolph, Snoopy, etc. Who do you love to see on the screen during the holidays? Mine would be Max, from How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST by Shannon Stacey

New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey celebrates the season in this brand-new holiday novella 

After a messy breakup, Leigh Holloway is ready to start her life over. Until her parents put the family home on the market and call her back for one final, memory-making Christmas. The last thing she wants to do is deprive her mom of the perfect holiday, so she’ll lie her way through the visit and worry about her future in the New Year. Too bad the only bar in town is owned by a guy she seriously wronged in high school.

Leigh’s best friend broke Croy Dawson’s heart, and Croy knows it was Leigh’s fault. They’ve never liked each other, but Croy isn’t cruel: he’d never turn away a pretty woman in need of some family-Christmas fortification. He doesn’t expect her to drink just enough candy-cane martinis to tell him her secrets—and he definitely doesn’t expect to get caught up in her holiday madness.

Despite the surprising love and laughter, Croy and Leigh can’t escape the truth: he can’t walk away from his family obligations and she has a life and career to reboot. But anything is possible if your holiday comes with a twist…
