Cupcake loves meeting new friends, but we weren’t sure how it would work out meeting Santa. She usually sticks close to her trusted humans when she is out of the house, and in order to get a photo with Santa, she would have to sit with a human she didn’t know.
When we arrived at the pet store, we heard “Cupcake!” from the checkout desk, followed by, “Are you here to see Santa?” It was too late to turn back now. The manager introduced Cucpake to a few employees who hadn’t met her while we were in line, then it was time to meet the guy in the red suit.
This is her official Santa photo, with her leash partly Photoshopped out. We may look for Santa again later in the season where she can sit next to him instead. She needs more practice with being held by strangers before any more Santa lap-sitting is successful.
