'Rupert,' a 7-month-old red smooth, licks the face of volunteer Patrick Ashton, dressed as Santa Claus, during a fundraising event for the Montgomery County Animal Shelter at a Petsmart location on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, in Shenandoah, Texas. Pet owners brought their animals for a chance to pose for a photograph with Santa Claus with half the proceeds of photo sales going to support the shelter. (AP Photo/Conroe Courier, Eric S. Swist).

Thanks so much to our good East Coast friend 'Kate' and her mom Jennifer for sending in the link. They are still mourning the loss of their beloved 'Allie' who passed earlier this year from that evil cancer. Please accept our sincerest condolences. The holidays certainly make it tougher.
