The day Santa almost lost his shih-tzu

santa-lolaIt has been almost a year since the day Santa almost lost his shih-tzu. Well, it wasn’t really Santa, it was me. And it wasn’t my shih-tzu, it was a friend’s — and a dog who normally jumps on me as opposed to off of me.

Still, it’s a rare dog who doesn’t want his or her photo taken with Santa Claus — and there are four opportunities coming up.

The first is tomorrow (Sunday) — at the new Locust Point Dog Park.

Pet Pictures with Santa runs from 10 a.m. to  1 p.m. Proceeds go toward the maintenance of the park, which opened this fall.

Canton Dog Park will be holding a similar fund-raising event on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 to noon.

Two more Photos with Santa events will be held to raise money for Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter’s Franky Fund, which helps care for seriously sick and injured animals that arrive at the shelter — On Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 to noon at Federal Hill Park, and on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 10 to noon at Riverside Park.

All the events are for good causes, and the photos make great Christmas cards.

(If you know of others pet photos with Santa events, please feel free to add them to this entry in the form of comments.)
