Question: What's better than pictures of dogs in clothes?

Answer: Pictures of dogs in clothes with Santa! Oh you know it. If you're in the Portland area, you can get a photo of your pet, Santa, and yourself at Fred Meyers over the next two weekends. Alas, no North Portland Fred Meyers, but there are plenty of others. And the best part? It's a fundraiser for the Oregon Humane Society. $20 and you're set. If any of you see me and Wink getting our picture taken, I'll donate another $20 to the Humane Society. Any bloggers and their dogs interested in meeting up, let me know. I'm all over this!
Details: The Oregon Humane Society’s annual Santa Paws pet portrait event comes to town on the weekends of November 10-11 and 17-18 at eight local Fred Meyer stores.

Get keepsake pictures of your pet with Santa, and help animals in need!

What Santa Will Give to You: You'll get two 5 x 7 professional quality portraits of your pet with Santa (family members are invited to sit along with their pets), a compact disc with a copy of your portrait, and the the opportunity to order more copies for yourself or for use as holiday greeting cards. All this for just $20, with the proceeds benefiting the animals at OHS.

When & Where to Meet Santa: November 10 - 11 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Fred Meyer Garden Centers located in the Gateway, Gresham, Hollywood, and Johnson Creek stores

November 17-18 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Fred Meyer Garden Centers located in the Oregon City, Raleigh Hills, Tualatin, and Walker Road stores.

Where Do I Pickup My Pictures? Your pictures will be available for pickup one week after they were taken. To get your pictures, go to the photo department at the same Fred Meyer store where your pictures were taken.

Right on! Any chance you'll post that photo on your blog? (As if I don't know the answer to that question.)

Seriously, what a great fundraiser for a great cause. I don't imagine there are going to be lot of cat owners queuing up, though. What to high of a freak-out factor.

S/B Way too high of a freak-out factor.

Rozanne-Oh, what I'd give to see a photo of you, B and Rusty with Santa. I think you did notice they said "pets" and not dog. You could ***totally*** do it. Dare I, dare you to?!?!?!

I'm laughing, thinking of the look on their faces if we showed up with all of our animals. Maybe Santa sitting on Bruno? LOL

I can't get over how dogs do that. You can't do that with cats, not without a case of bandaids and a few pints of blood handy.

Have fun!

How can Santa be in all those places at once? I'm confused.

I've always wanted to do this with my dog but I have, instead of sugarplum fairies, visions of my sweet protective dog ripping the poor santa's beard to shreds or standing a few feet away refusing to budge stiff like a statue and growling with a menacing teeth displayed look on her face.

Although on second thought that might make an awesome Christmas photo.

Fred Meyer here we come!
