Santa’s Been Watching You Stella……

“He knows if you’ve been bad or good…so be good for goodness sake!”  Apparently, Stella thought thinks that doesn’t apply to her.   Mama took her to see Santa this past weekend.

The Planet Dog Foundation (http://www.planetdogfoundation.org/)  did their annual “Sit With Santa” at the Planet Dog store (http://www.planetdog.com/home/).   As always with events put on by PDF….it was well organized and lots of fun!  You would think that a store full of dogs would be chaos, but it wasn’t!

They took a little photo of Stella and a number so that her photo could be easily found later.

After Mama squeezed on her Elf hat....they loaded her onto Santa's lap...

And with a little encouragement from a squeaky toy and lots of "What a pretty girl!"'s they started snapping away.

When Santa asked her if she'd been a good girl...Stella could not look him in the eye.

"What stick of butter? I don't know what you're talking about Santa."

"Yum. Butter."

Ho! Ho! Ho! I know a Schnoodle who's getting lots of coal!

"I should have listened to Mama. He DOES know if you've been bad or good."

Naughty, but super cute!!! That counts for something.

Awwwww!!!!!!

Maybe Santa will forget about the Naughtiness this year Stell and bring you a present anyway.

When the photo shoot was over, they printed off a copy of the best one to send home with you and posted the rest on flickr

(Stella’s are in Group #2, page 2.)

And Santa…..what a great Santa!!!!  He was so patient and nice….he had a lap full of dogs, kids….and he was always smiling!  I hear they raised $800 for the foundation!

We’ll see if Santa takes Stella’s cuteness and good behavior at the photo shoot into consideration.  I’m pretty sure he DID see her put her feet up on the counter and try to lick a donut in the store that day…..

  1. Stick of butter! Oh my, I bet that was tasty.

    I’m sure cuteness totally counts, at least I hope so!

    As always, Stellla looks adorable. Maybe next year you could get her four little elf slippers (with toe bells of course!) to go with the elf hat? I am sure you would have no trouble getting those on, keeping them on, and getting her to walk in them (ha, ha). Seriously though, the man who played Santa deserves some seriously good Christmas gifts. I hope that he didn’t get peed on by any nervous doggies!

    Merry Christmas!

    P.S. Stella, you must focus! We are in the final days before Christmas. So do not eat (any people food) or destroy (your toys or Papa’s belongings) anything between now and Christmas and I’m sure Santa will bring you some goodies–or at the very least don’t get caught/leave evidence behind (teeth marks, shreds of destroyed object, etc.), be a sneaky elf!

  3. Wow Stella,
    You are really good. I think I’m going to get lots coal in my stocking because I’m not that great with men with beards. They look like they have squirrels on their faces. I wouldn’t have sat in Santa’s lap. Well at least not without a ton of chicken jerkey. I know you’re going to get lots of presents.

    Your Pal,
    Opie
