Thanksgiving’s over and your dog’s ready to move on to the next holiday. Whether she’s been naughty or nice (maybe both) this season, introduce her to the big man in red at Reber Ranch’s Santa Photos with Love Life Family Photography this weekend. Sessions are first come, first served.

Jellyfish Brewing Co, Lowercase Brewing, Machine House Brewery, Great Notion Georgetown, Elysian Brewing Co
Saturday, November 26, 12-5 p.m.
You didn’t raise a pup-crastinator, and your dog absolutely refuses to be known as the dog who is giving out a generic, boring candle this holiday. Get a head start with your holiday shopping and support local businesses at Georgetown Maker’s Market and Bar Hop! Start at any of these five dog-friendly breweries and shop local makers while sipping on great beer with your fluffy shopaholic buddy.
3. Cookies, Cocoa, and Carolers at Occidental Square
Occidental Square, Seattle
Saturday, November 26, 12-3 p.m.
Whether you’re looking for a casual day to take holiday candids with your dog or the full experience, head over to Occidental Square in Seattle for the spirit of the season. Get into the holiday mood this weekend with the 3 best C’s of Christmas: cookies, cocoa and carolers.
4. Pet Nights with Santa
Alderwood Mall, Lynnwood
Monday, November 28, 4-7 p.m.; reservations required
So we know this one’s on a Monday, but your dog needs her portrait taken for her annual holiday card, and she’s not going to let your definition of “the weekend” stop her. Take your photo and get a little face time with Santa Paws so she can let him know what’s on her wishlist this year.
