Miniature Poodles Pickle and Punchy with owner Rebecca Goddard.
Close to 800 dogs, many of them dressed up in festive garb, have visited their very own Santa Paws in a special dog-only Christmas grotto held in Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire this weekend.
The two-day event, which was organised by park rangers working for Nottinghamshire County Council, has been running for three years.
Ranger Graeme Turner, who originally came up with the idea for a doggy-themed Santa's Grotto said this year has been the best so far.
“The queue is huge, it snakes back all the way round the visitor’s centre,” he said. “All the dogs are being very well behaved, I guess they don't want to get onto Santa Paw’s naughty list this close to Christmas!”
All canine visitors to the grotto got a special doggy bag full of treats and money raised from the event will go to Jerry Green Dog Rescue charity.
