On Saturday we took Athena to Personal Beast where they had a Santa available to take pictures with. It was much more casual than the Santa picture event that we attended last weekend because there wasn't a professional photographer. We simply brought our own camera and set up Athena in front of Santa for some pictures.
Athena wasn't as interested in this Santa as she was of the one last weekend, so we had a hard time getting her to sit near Santa for pictures. But, she did a great job fulfilling her duty as one of Santa's reindeer from afar.
This weekend Athena also joined me at my grandma's house to help decorate her Christmas tree. Athena surprisingly had no interest in the Christmas tree or ornaments. She simply sniffed them and went on her merry way. She did however have an incident with the tree topper which happens to be a collectable Muffy Vanderbear angel (it's a stuffed bear!). My grandma set it on the ground for one minute and as soon as she turned around Athena had the bear in her mouth! Luckily we have no plans for trying to sell the bear on Ebay anytime in the future.
Seeing as Athena has a pouty face in every one of the pictures above, I'm thinking that she may not have been hit with the Christmas bug as bad as I was. Have you and your dogs caught any holiday bugs lately?
