On the final day of our first-ever Pet Week (did you catch reader faves like the blogger-pet gallery, dog park map, and Store Sidekicks series?), we invite you to explore new ways to ring in the holidays with your sweet little fur ball. One idea is taking him/her to Beverly Center, where the shopping mecca is currently hosting its annual Santa Pet Portraits service.
A handful of TV stars kicked off the FREE festivities last night, including Beverly Hills, 90210's Jennie Garth (above with her four pups named Pearl, Roxy, Pinky, and Sandy) and E!'s Ross Matthews. Pet portraits are available daily starting now through Friday, November 28th (Mon-Fri 12pm to 8pm; Sat 11am-7pm; Sun 12pm-5pm) and Saturday, November 29th (10am to 9pm). Note that pets must be on a leash or in a lightweight carrier and must be up-to-date on their shots.
Beverly Center also tells us that "Santa may elect to not be in the photo based on the nature of the pet," so unless it's Rudolph, make sure your furry friend is in a tame mood before approaching.
