Santa has been meeting with some four-legged friends along with the regular two-legged ones.

It was Fur Kid Night at the Miller Hill Mall on Sunday. Families could bring in their pets to meet Santa and get a picture. Every pet was invited, but many dogs were in the crowd. One volunteer hoped her friend would change that.

"We haven't had any wacky animals," said volunteer Kristen Moir. "I had a friend who was going to bring her snake."

Miller Hill Mall's marketing director, Machelle Kendrick, said more than 100 people signed up for the event.

"It's just a fun night at Miller Hill Mall," she said. "We've had a great Christmas crowd this year, and we're just pleased to bring this event to the community."

Kendrick said the event was so successful that they will probably bring it back next year.
