All paws on deck

Santa Paws

Dear Santa,

Why oh why do you have the look of fear in your eyes and a death grip on the dog?
Love, the photographer.

Today we had a photo event for Santa Paws at Nature’s Pet store in Salem. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it was, but it was definitely an all paws on deck kinda day. My awesome, amazing and wonderful daughters drove down from Portland to help… and well, three guesses to figure out who is hiding behind the beard… yes, that is Karen, best assistant ever.

I have never taken my dogs to see Santa and the girls were really little when they sat in Santa’s lap, but I suspected that not all dogs would recognize Karen as a true dog-lover behind the cloak of red and white.

Yup, I was right. We only had a couple of little dogs that really had no desire to there and this little one was one of them.

Over all it was a great day. A pair of dogs pulled Karen right out of her chair and she fogged up her glasses a couple of times.

It will take me a week to share all of my out takes.

  1. Ah man, I wish I’d known you were doing this! I’ve been wanting to do Santa pictures with my dogs, and have’t been able to find somewhere to do it that works for me. You don’t have any additional Santa picture days planned do you?
