Santa Claws

It takes my brave and handsome 18-pound tabby less than two miles before he pisses himself in a moving vehicle. The other cat isn't too interested in leaving a crate once he's in it, so using my skills in logic, I have determined that it's the pug who will have his photo taken with Santa this year. This Tuesday and next, the Parks at Arlington (Interstate 20 at Cooper Street) hosts Pet Night for that very purpose. Pet owners and their leashed or appropriately caged cats or dogs should use the mall entrance between Sears and Dick's Sporting Goods and head to Santa in the Sears Court. Photo package prices start at $13.95 (30 seconds of snow is available for an added fee...seriously). Call 817-467-0200 or visit
