Santa and Patsy Cline

Patsy Cline and Santa 2013

This is the Christmas adventure last Saturday!
 
Here is what Janet said last Saturday:
 
"Well I can't imagine why you can't tell until next Saturday.... In fact I wonder if I even read your message correctly. In mulling over you message I have decided that your town (or Walmart?...Sears?...Park and Recreation?? church? vet clinic? ) may have offered a take a photo of a pet owner and their pets with Santa opportunity and you decided to take the girls in for a photo shoot."
 
 
Good guess, Janet.

The sitting was free last Saturday at TSC. Otherwise, Santa and I would have had a come-to-jesus-meeting! He had never held a chicken before and did not take instructions. Yes, I asked him...lol. 10 out of 13 poses have her looking forward, so between her skinny face, his big hands, the bandana, and him squishing he, she looks weird. He just could not hold her right. He was a grumpy Santa. He did NOT like her flapping her wings all over him.
 
In this picture, I went to the side so she would turn. Everyone was trying to get her to look up. She needed to look sideways. It was a fun day.

This is a picture where she finally found Santa's belt buckle to hold onto. In others her feet are just hanging.
She whispered in his ear, so I just have to guess she wants more corn under the tree and coupons for more free range time.
 
The rest of the animals were dogs. We left quickly.
 
Your turn
Have your animals, especially chickens, ever had a Christmas "portrait." Did Santa look like he had never seen an animal, much less hold one?

  1. Had to laugh. My husband plays santa at Ours tractor supply. He does mostly dogs and cats but has held a chicken,goat,and pig for pictures.

    1. Peggy,
      How funny! I assume he knows how to hold a chicken and is friendly Santa.

      I am just shocked that I have a reader whose husband is Santa at TSC. How did he score that gig?

  3. Nice photo!

    I was planning to get a photo taken of my puppy with Santa at Petco this year (coincidentally Santa was there the day she was being groomed). But I refused to pay $8.95 considering the crummy backdrop and CREEPY looking Santa they hired.

    1. tlc,
      Thanks. You would know what was nice or not. Of course, creepy Santa was NOT a problem here. I was impressed. Maybe you will find something better or just take a picture in front of your tree.

  4. What a hoot. Love it. Surprisingly few people even have held a chicken. Which is sad.

    1. EC,
      Yes, I thought it would be fun when I heard about it. So true. People are so far removed from the farm or backyard chickens.

  5. So cute! I'm not surprised Santa never held a chicken before, but he should have listened to you, considering that you obviously have!

    1. Well, maybe he had, but he sure acted like he had not. It was free, so I didn't make a fuss. If I were paying, I would have held up the line while I demonstrated!
