It's officially December and that means the holidays will be here in no time. Which also means...


There's nothing more fun than decorating the inside and outside of your house or apartment in garland, lights, and all sorts of other festive items. And what good is decorating if you don't get a little help?

So here for your enjoyment and pleasure is a roundup of 20 dogs who are helping (or at least watching) their owners decorate for the holidays.

This German Shepherd and his owner are posed and perfect post-decorating.
