Parents and kids brought their dogs to have a picture taken with Santa & Mrs. Claus. The lap of Santa was kept busy with all sizes of canine friends. Sometimes Mr. Claus had to have two or more animals in his lap at a time, but like a trouper Santa is, he loved every minute.

Several dog adoptions vendors were on hand with cute little puppies that needed a home and a loving family. Any finds raised at this event would be used to benefit dog rescue groups.
