Pets just can’t seem to keep their paws off Santa.
At the St. Davids Veterinary Clinic on Saturday, old St. Nick met plenty of pets – naughty or nice – from Yorkies to Westies and all those in between.
Veterinarian Stephanie Hall and assistant Julia Michitsch were happy to welcome all sorts of furry friends to “Photos With Santa” for the ninth year.
“It’s a longstanding tradition for the clinic,” said Michitsch.
This year’s photo-op was elevated with an indoor and outdoor field, as well as a visit from the Purple Perk Coffee truck.
Two of Santa’s visitors included Yorkshire terriers Cooper and Frankie, who were on their best behaviour – other than a bit of squirming – during their photo-op with Kris Kringle.
It was all free but donations were collected to help support the St. Davids Lions Club’s dog guide program.
