Man's best friend got its turn to sit on Santa's lap Tuesday.
Families were invited to bring their furry friends to Knoxville Center mall for "Pet Photos with Santa."
Pet owner Carol McDaniel said while she enjoys getting those Christmas pictures with her dog, the experience was also a great training experience.
"We just like to show her off, and it's a good socializing for her because when we got her she had no training at all," said McDaniel. "We've had her less than a year, and she gets a little fearful with a lot of people around, and we just like her to be relaxed. It's just a good training thing to do."
If you want to get your pet to pose with Old Saint Nick, you still have another opportunity. Knoxville Center Mall will host another pet photo session on Monday, Dec. 10th from 5 - 7 p.m.
