THIS

This is a real thing that real people do.

I did not expect this.

their sitting with Santa and photos courtesy of Petroglyph Photography.

Saturday 16 November. 10:00am – 3:00pm

RSPCA ACT – 12 Kirkpatrick Street Weston.

Bookings are essential.
Don’t miss out, book your spot today!

This is a real thing that is so popular bookings are required.

Now that I know this is a real thing I realise two thing:

1. Everything else that I have dismissed as being a joke and not possibly real may well exist.

2. I need in on this. I do Santa work, and I’m over children. Sign me up.

What’s Your opinion?

I love the serious look on those dogs faces. I just love dogs. I love seeing dogs riding in the back of cars like any normal passenger. I digress, but it might help explain why some people feel the need to do things like this.

Yes they want a donation, but it’s also nice to get something. I’ve taken my two legged small thing to Santa for a few years now. And it’s usually at least 40 bucks for him to be frightened as all get out about the man in the red suit. I’d love to include puppy Cholet in the deal this year – he’s getting on now and it may be our last opp.

Dude you obviously have too much money if it seems normal to you to spend $40 on a “treat” your kids don’t even like. The only “santa visits” we got as kids were organised through school or church, and at that school I don’t recall there ever being more than 40 kids. Santa rode in on a firetruck, gave out presents (wrapped and smuggled in by the parents) and rode out again, the whole magical experience put together by the parents for free because volunteer firefighters are superheroes. What else do you need?

The cost is for the package of pictures you receive mostly – for grandparents uncles and aunties to adorn their walls and key chains with. That’s if you remember to distribute the pictures….oops.

And mostly it costs this much because it’s the first Santa you see when you have time to do it. I’m not going Santa shop to get the best price. It is what it is.

Telling someone they are spending to much on something is silly if you don’t know all the facts of why they did so. It might be because it’s just convenient and not a big deal for them to do so.

Packages start from $25???? Is liquor included in the deluxe package?

I think that includes a chihuahua to hang on the tree. There are bells on its hat, and when the tinkling stops, it is time to throw it out.

Sometimes a dog *is* for Christmas…(-:

The pooch on Santa’s right wants a copy of Red Dog. The other one looks insecure, and may need therapy.

For mine, this is the kind of thing that makes me think Osama bin Laden may have had a point about the state of Western civilisation. But, each to their own!

Madam fluffypants is SO not interested! If they want a $25 donation they should just say so.

I love this. I have done this for the last six years – first with one dog, then two, even added the cats one year (that was, um… interesting…), then Baby Threepaws, and this year my booking will include Newborn Threepaws.

We started out a little tongue in cheek but these photos have turned out to be fantastic keepsakes, and I’m sure my family LOVE receiving the Christmas cards 😉

So, wish me (and santa) luck for this year – two dogs, two cats, one toddler, one newborn

At least they wouldn’t go on and on about what they want for Christmas.

That staffie is very pretty.

Booked in!

Never work with children or animals.

Poor Santa 😉
