The first thing I learned is that my dogs aren't the only ones who see Santa and freak out! About half of the dogs that came in had some sort of reaction to our Santa. It ranged from suspicion to intimidation to anxiety to one who had a fairly aggressive reaction. Santa did, in fact, get bit once. Thankfully, it didn't break the skin.
Beyond that, my biggest hurdle was getting the parents to stand behind me to get the pups to look in my direction. Dogs take direction better than people... Despite that, I did get a few pictures that I was pretty happy with.
Here are a few of my favorites!
Two of the sweetest pups, ever!
She promptly took a nap after this picture...
Yes, this little one does have a mohawk with vegetable-based dye!
This sweet boy is SEVENTEEN years old! I may have teared up while talking to his family about how special he is to them.
