    Henny, he doesn't have to sit on santas lap. Lord knows there is no way Cutty would sit on his lap. Mugsy hated seeing Santa last year but we did it quick and there weren't a lot of people. Just go off his signals and see how he does.

    Good luck! I know Otis would be bouncing off the walls, I need to train him a little better before we attempt that one.

    Before we went to get pics with Santa ... We took a 2 hour walk so all our ya-yas were used up and all the energy we had left was to sit pretty and smile.

    I'd take them both for a long walk beforehand. Then go with a friend ... that way if he does have an issue he can be led away from the situation, and you can still get one bully in a pic with Santa. With @JeannieCO growing photo app skills she may even be able to photoshop him into the pic!!!!

    I've love all the Santa pics. I've never been one to take any of mine though. Something about sitting them with someone strange in a suit where they can't recognize the person just doesn't appeal to me. I do love the photos though.

I have a feeling it'll be pretty crowded 'cuz it's Santa's last wknd there.
    A nice long walk before the bath and the requisite bathroom break before Santa and I'll bet Tate will be too pooped to act out. A good dog is a tired dog! You have to be CALM and ASSERTIVE too so nothing "tips him off" that you are anxious about anything. Part of how he reacts in these situations could totally be his reaction to the anxiousness YOU are feeling inside! Stand strong EB Mama!

    Today was the day for Tate and Finn to see Santa Paws at Pet Smart. We started the morning with both of them getting a much needed bath and the works because I wanted them to be fresh and clean if they were going to visit Santa. Finn was in particular very antsy about going to Pet Smart in the first place. He did not even want to get out of the car and when he did, I could see his little body shaking. So, I was pretty sure we were not going to get pics done if Finn was already acting like this.

    Fast forward to after the grooming: I'm talking to the cashier as I pay for the baths and I ask if there's a long line to see Santa. She says NO! it's still pretty quiet so you should go NOW! hmmm...okay, i'm thinking in my head...let's check it out...

    I get there and a few store clerks were fawning all over the boys (of course, right?), and encouraging me to get a pic w/Santa. Just one person ahead of us so we wait in line. It's our turn and I decide to just get a separate shot of each boy w/Santa vs. one together. Turned out Tate was more antsy than Finn during the picture taking. Actually, I think Finn was just so scared he didn't really know what to do except sit there.

    So, here are some outtakes and the final pics w/Santa Paws!

    ps: One gripe I had about the "photo shoot" was how Santa didn't even talk to the boys and ask them what they wanted for Christmas! Now is that too much to ask for from a Santa Paws???!

    oh yay! I love love love the pictures I'm so glad you were able to get the pictures, hopefully they both recovered quick after the pictures where done ... and YES Santa should have been talking and interacting with them! (the Cranky Clause we had at Petsmart was the same way )
