This dog and his human have a better Christmas card than you

Ted and his human, Sarah, are relationship goals as well as Christmas card goals.

How was your family's Christmas card this year?

Cute? Yeah, probably.

But, it was doubtfully as cute as Ted and Sarah's this year.

Each year, the pair come up with a clever Christmas card, and 2017's is pretty darn epic.

Ted is a 100-pound golden retriever, and Sarah is a young, single professional who lives in Denver.

"I wanted to do something simple for 2017 and this idea came to me when I was shopping for a bike trailer that could endure the weight of my 108 lb dog," she wrote to Next in email.

"A few months ago I stopped using my car and it has been the happiest change I've made this year. The only downside is that it's hard to take Ted with me on my bike, so this image is what I dream of doing when I'm riding around Denver. 'Love is an Uphill Pedal' is to that say that my dog loves me... but when I do things like force him to take xmas card photos, he merely tolerates me - as seen by the look on his face on the back of the card," she wrote.

Here's the back of her card:

Sarah Morely and Ted's 2017 Holiday card.

Did she actually get Ted to ride on the back of her bike like that?!

No.

"What I didn't expect from all of this is how many people would ask me how I got Ted on the bike.. or flat out say, 'This is seriously impressive, way to go Ted!' (my cousin). I thought it was obviously photoshopped but now I'm willing to let this mystery live on a little longer," she said.

Sorry we ruined the mystery, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless!

And, here's her 2016 card, in which she re-made a scene from "Ghost," a 1990 movie starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.

"I'm in my 30s and people keep asking me when I'm going to get married and I'm like, you know what, I'm having a great time with my dog," said Morley in 2016.
