NEW LONDON (WLUK) -- Some looked away while others cozied up next to him -- one thing Saturday's photo shoot proved in New London, it's not too early to take pictures with Santa Claus.

For $8, pups showed a little Christmas spirit at the Sleepy Creek Pet Lodge.

The $8 photos were emailed to pet owners. They could get a printed photo for $15.

Some people made it a family affair.

"We've had little girls in bows and their little puppy dogs and everybody's smiling and enjoying the experience and, you know, what better way to spend a Saturday with your pet," said Candy Janke, Sleepy Creek Pet Lodge owner.

Forty dogs showed up for a photo.

The event raised $550 and that money will go toward the Waupaca County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit.

No word on how owners plan to use the photos but it's safe to say whoever sees the snapshots will likely crack a smile.
