Yup, I took the furry one to see Santa. Not so much for the photo, although it’s cute, but for the experience. Pet Pictures with Santa was held inside the PX, so this gave us a great way of getting some socialization in, letting her experience something new, and working on some training. (And we got a cute photo.) I mean, how often can you bring your puppy to the PX, right?
I’m happy to report that she did great, had a good time, and got a ton of compliments. For the most part (small bouts of getting distracted aside), she heeled, sat, laid down, shook hands, and was a very good girl. I had several people remark how “well behaved” she is. Mostly from people whose dogs were dragging them into the store or freaking out about sitting with Santa.
She even got to meet a miniature pig - she tried to make it play with her. When it grunted and walked away, she went into her nicest play bow and barked at it
