Mark Your Calendars: Santa Paws!

Believe it or not, but I have never gotten Hunter’s picture taken with Santa. I think this is the year that is finally going to change! I’m still not convinced he’s going to sit calmly and take a good photo, but I want to give it a try. Plus, when you consider that most Santa Paws events benefit local rescue groups (and that there’s an event pretty much every weekend from now til Christmas) there really is no excuse to not get a photo taken.

Here is a roundup, by date, of upcoming Santa Paws events. Mr. Paws is going to be very busy guy over the next month!

First up – visit Beachwood Mall on Mondays from now through Dec. 15 to take your pet to see Santa starting at 6 p.m. http://www.beachwoodplace.com/events/pet-photos-with-santa
