25 Dogs Visit Santa! (Photos)

Ho, ho ho! Santa is getting ready for his annual ride, and if you have a pup who has been very good this year, Santa may be on his way to your home within weeks!

So maybe our dogs don’t get quite as excited as our kids when it comes to ole’ St. Nick, but we still revel in the festivities. Many pet parents dress their dogs and cats up in full Christmas garb. Some of us take pictures for our holiday cards, and quite a few of us take our pooches to visit Santa, too.

And why shouldn’t our dogs get in on the action and have the chance to request those chewies and squeaky toys up close and personal with the big fella?

Check out these adorable photos as 25 dogs visit Santa. Some sit on Santa’s lap and smile pretty, but others, well you’ll just have to click to see!
