Going to the Dogs...and the Cats...and the Pig?

Fluffy all decked out with bells on for it's photo with Santa.

With the festive season almost here, it's only right that Fluffy, Fido and Einstein the Pig get their photo's taken with Santa. The SPCA in Chelsea had their Open House which allowed our furry friends to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. We had lots of dogs, a couple of cat's and one special visitor....Einstein the Pig.

My photo instructor, Harry Nowell, http://www.harrynowell.com/ volunteers to take photos and open's up this opportunity to one of his students. I jumped at the chance to do this. I believe I put my name in for this over a year ago when I signed up for the ProProgram Course.

Most of the pet's coming in to get their photo taken, adopted their new families at the SPCA in Chelsea. The volunteers here are the most wonderful, amazing people and I was thrilled to be part of this special day. The Open House and Photo's With Santa raised about $2000.00. I know all the animals that have passed through this shelter say Thank You. Woof! Meow! Oink!

Here are a few photos of this wonderful day.

Einstein The Pig made me laugh.  I've never been near a real pig before.  Einstein was so cute with his top hat and coat.

Our beloved Maxwell, passed away almost 4 years and I have been trying to get my husband to agree on adopting another dog but I haven't had any luck.  This little guy was looking for a new home so I took him to Santa, took his photo and was hoping to show this little face to my husband and maybe adopt him.  No luck but I think he's starting to think about it.  Fingers crossed.
