The super pet-friendly Kimpton Hotels chain (read our recent blog post, Kimpton Provides On-the-Road Pooch Pampering) is inviting guests and locals alike to have themselves a “furry little Christmas” at select hotels nationwide next weekend (Saturday, December 10, and Sunday, December 11). The “Santa Paws” events will feature a complimentary opportunity for pets to pile onto Santa’s lap, meow or bark their secret Christmas desires, and to grin big for a family photo (note that human companions should bring their own cameras) in the festively decorated hotel lobbies.

Just plan to show up with Fido or Fluffy between 2pm and 4pm – they'll also be able to chow down on homemade treats and lap up some H2O from provided water bowls (not to fret: light refreshments will be on hand for their owners, too). Just be sure to keep 'em on a leash and to keep in mind that your more skittish four-legged friends might want to skip this one, as it’s sure to draw quite the furry crowd.
