Dogs and cats love Santa as much as kids do.
So why not take your loveable family pet to the Santa Paws event Sunday at Pet Over Population Prevention, 524B Warehouse St., off Wellsian Way in Richland.
Santa Paws offers pet owners photo sessions for their animals with jolly old St. Nick. And any domesticated pet is allowed -- dog, cat, lizard, snake, hamster, guinea pig, bird -- as long as it is well behaved and won't freak out at the sight of an old man with a while beard wearing a red suit.
Artistic Portraits will take photos from 1 to 4 p.m. Two 5-by-7 portraits cost $20. Proceeds help feed, house, spay and neuter abandoned and homeless pets.
