Volunteer Sue Murphy and daughter Maeve pose with Santa during some down time.

PAWS volunteer Julia Venzke served as the photographer, and recruited boyfriend Jamie Ward to be Santa.

This bulldog Bubba was born to be in pictures....

Small children were amazed to find that Santa even comes to PetSmart!

This five-week old puppy was too tired to open his eyes....!

We had a few camera-shy pets, but...

With patience and team effort to get the pet to look at the camera, we always ended up with a good picture!
