Tis the season for dogs all over the world to get their Christmas on.

They may not understand why we go crazy over trees we don’t even pee on, but they do know at some point during December they get a toy wrapped in delicious paper, and they puppin’ love it.

We took to the streets and the interwebz to find some pups ready to meet Santa Paws this Christmas.


1. Somewhere between a bear and a dog is the Chow Chow. This one’s is attempting to disguise himself one of Santa’s reindeer…but we’re onto you Chow Chow.
