Bundle your dog or cat up in their Minnesnowta best for pictures with Santa at Ridgedale Center this season, happening on select nights.
I haven't done this in years, but for the first couple years of my chihuahua's life, I'd take him to see Santa at Petsmart. Honestly I would not recommend going there anymore, because I don't think they even have a live Santa these days (like the one pictured). The second Santa I took him to (also at Petsmart, but in Colorado) was obviously drunk...and the experience was just weird. Now they have a lame iPad photo booth with awful lighting and a digital Santa photo overlay that just looks tacky.
However, Mondays through December 17 from 5-8 p.m., dogs and cats can take photos with the Santa himself at Ridgedale Center! There are a couple guidelines to make this a safe and fun event: keep pets on a leash or contained in a kennel, and clean up after your pet if there are accidents.
