This picture was taken 13 years ago at a pet store that was having a promotion to have a picture taken not only with Santa, but also with pets and it was placed in a commemorative ornament for around $7.

I thought this sounded like a great idea.  I put Kyle in his Sunday best and we loaded up the  cat, Tigger, and Kyle’s dog, Maxx in my car and headed off to the pet store on the other side of town.

When we got to the pet store Maxx wanted to sniff everything and Tigger just wanted to escape and was growling and clawing me  while we were waiting in line.   Maxx  out weighted Kyle by about 10 pounds and got away from Kyle and started running away; fortunately one of the store personnel caught him.

When it finally was our turn poor Santa took my growling cat and seemed to put some sort of Vulcan cat grip on her because she did calm down a little (perhaps because there were no needles in sight) .   Although it might look like Kyle posing with Maxx, he is actually hanging on to his collar for dear life as Maxx was eyeballing the other critters in line to have their pictures taken and either wanted to play or chase them.

I was surprised the photo turned out as well and all look so happy and serene as it did because at the time it felt like pure chaos.
