Get your (4-legged) kid photographed with Santa

Any childless gay person knows: Our dogs are not just our pets; they are our family. And the holidays is when family members go to the mall to get their picture taken with Santa. But try bringing your little Huckleberry to NorthPark and getting past the elves. Mean S.O.B.s, they are.

But on Nov. 13 and 14, and again Nov. 20 and 21, you can find a pet-friendly lap in a bright red suit (pictured, as played by Linden Bransom). From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, Santa and photographer John Hudson will be on hand for Hounds for the Holidays, a fundraiser for the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT). Located at Town Hall Square n Belt Line Road in Addison, personalized pictures start at $10. And you don’t need to have a greyhound, either — all breeds are welcome.
