We're not one of those families that puts clothing on our dog Gracie although I think we put antlers on her head one year when the kids were younger.  Nor have we included her in family pictures to friends and family over the years but this year we might make an exception and take advantage of a free photo with Santa.

Ya see, Gracie will be 15 years old in the Spring and has lived a few years longer than expected so we're not sure how many years she has left.  Why not take this opportunity to do something special while we still can.  That opportunity is this weekend at Pet Smart over on W. Main in the Maple Hill stretch of stores.  According to our friends at simplemost.com, it's this Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm.  And it doesn't have to be just Santa and your pet.  The whole family can get in the picture and really make it memorable.
