This event was arranged by Nikki Carlsen of Fetching Canine Manners and was held at Newport News Animal Hospital.
Therapy Dog International Chapter President, Bruce Meier, played Santa. All proceeds were to benefit Animal Aid.
Higgins had a great time visiting everyone, but couldn't decide whether to wear those red things as antlers or a cape!
Lots of dogs came by for their photos including alumni Joey, who looked healthy and happy.
Thank you so much Nikki for helping Animal Aid.

and are sometimes even good to hide under!
