Santa Paws Visits Dogs Trust

Santa Paws paid his annual visit to Dogs Trust West Calder Christmas Market on Sunday, 9th December.  The centre was overwhelmed with dog and human visitors hoping to meet the jolly old elf, and donate toys and treats for dogs at the centre, still waiting to be adopted.

Barking Cat was delighted to be there to photograph the visits with Santa, and here is a wee sample.
