Christmas Pooches

What’s cuter than little kids tugging at Santa’s beard? Dogs chewing on it! See if that’s the reaction your canine has to old St. Nick today during Paws Meet Claus at Penn Valley Off-Leash Dog Park (29th Street and Wyandotte). From 10:30 a.m until noon, Kris Kringle himself will pose with pups and pass out Scooby snacks — to the delight of the animals but especially to their humans. Warm beverages will be available for the bipeds. Call 816-513-7527 or see kcmo.org/parks for more information.
