The pups had their annual pictures with Santa Paws this Saturday. Reyna was so excited to see him that she tried to climb up into Santa’s lap. Duncan was a bit shy at first, which is a huge improvement over being terrified of Santa like he’s been every other year. It was a pretty relaxed group of volunteers this time, which isn’t always the case. The photographer took a couple of pictures and I decided I didn’t like how the dogs were sitting so he stopped and let me rearrange them a bit. Duncan stood up at one point, and everyone (with the exception of the photographer, I think), said “Duncan, sit!” He looked a little confused, but he sat. We wrapped up the photo shoot when Reyna told us she was done. She actually got up and grabbed her leash from Santa’s hand and started walking towards me. That seemed like a good time to call it quits. I can pick up their pictures this Friday evening, so I’ll find out then if the photographer was any good. The dogs were their natural photogenic selves, so if there aren’t any good pictures, its all because of the guy behind the camera.
