Yes Brie, There Is A Santa Claus

It's that time of year and luckily I didn't forget again :oS You see, Brie has been going to see Santa every year (minus one) since she was born. Unfortunately last year it slipped by and before I knew it, 'I' was the one in the 'dog house'. LOL! I enjoy going to these visits as well because all the money raised goes to help our local SPCA.

Sunday morning I got up, grabbed Brie and into the tub she went for a bath. I didn't want poor Santa to pass out from her notorious body odour ;o) I went through her wardrobe and picked out a cute snowman hanky to put around her neck. Surprisingly, when I told her we were going to see Santa, the car ride didn't seem so bad. Why did I end up with such a smart dog????

My biggest concern about the visit was whether she would poop or pee on Santa :oS Since her surgery, this can be a little unpredictable when she's excited. Thankfully, all went well and these are the shots we got -

As you can see, she was given an added decoration around her neck. I was a little perturbed but I'm happy with the results. Since Brie was such a good girl, we went through the garden center to the ice cream counter and I bought her a little treat :o)

Unfortunately we didn't manage to get out of there without her peeing on the floor but that was partly my fault. And plus, with all those dogs, what do you expect! I was proud of her none the less :o) Little one had such a big day that she slept most of that afternoon. I wonder what she asked Santa to bring her for Christmas...

Now that is just too cute for words. And the collar makes quite a fashion statement!

That's a great idea! Brie looks like she was very well behaved for her pictures. I like the one where she is looking at Santa...so cute.
I'll have to see if Santa comes to visit furbabies here too!

Awww, Brie looks so sweet with Santa!

I can't believe such a lady as Brie would ever have body odor...shame on you, Cathey, for suggesting such a rumor!

Faith Ann said...

Awwww... too cute! I love the last photo :)

Glad that Brie made it through the session without pooping on Santa :)

Suzanne said...

OMG those are awesome pictures! I doubt seriously mine will turn out half that good...I'll find out tomorrow!

If it makes you feel any better, at Daisy's second pictures with Santa trip, she peed not only on Santa but on my arm where I was holding her as well. Then one year she pulled his beard off. This year she just eyed his beard but I got her attention before she tried to shave him in her own special way...

9.30pm at night here and Heidi simply will not sleep but the pictures of Brie and Santa have changed her screams to smiles about the "Princess Puppy". Thank you.

What a cutie, she took great pictures. I took Jaz to see Santa last year and the picture turned out pretty good. I haven't seen the postings for this year yet, but I'm hoping to take her again. Like yours, ours is a fundraiser for our local humane society too.

Very cute! I'd love to take Pepper to have pictures with Santa, but he would definitely pee all over the place. He puts on a tough-dog act at home, but when faced with actually having to interact with other dogs and people, he gets super timid and starts whizzing all over the place. *sigh*
