South Western Times - - News -

Pets of all shapes and sizes will be able to join the fes­tive fam­ily por­trait at the Bun­bury Fo­rum this year, as Santa sets up shop next door to Red Dot on Satur­day.

Santa said he was tak­ing time out of his busy toy mak­ing sched­ule to visit the pets and chil­dren of the South West.

“The elves are still up there work­ing and I have Mrs Claus still look­ing af­ter them while I am here, but I will have to leave shortly to go back to the North Pole,” he said.

“I love pets my­self, I have got quite a few at home – the more pets the hap­pier I am.

“I have rein­deer up at the North Pole, but when I get to Aus­tralia, I use my six white boomers.”

Mr Claus said plenty of dogs and rab­bits had been booked in to pay him a visit, but he en­cour­aged crit­ters of all kinds.

“If you have a pet snake or a pet kan­ga­roo – they are all wel­come.”

Ap­point­ments can be made by call­ing 9721 5899 and vis­i­tors must bring their own cam­era.

Santa will also be ready to pose with good boys and girls out­side Big W un­til Christ­mas Eve, with Sen­si­tive Santa vis­it­ing on De­cem­ber 2, 9 and 16.

Santa will also ar­rive at the Bun­bury Cen­tre­point Shop­ping Cen­tre with a pa­rade on Satur­day at 11am.
