Feliz navi-dog.

Most dog owners would do just about anything for their beloved pooch—even treat them like a human child and take them to get photos with Santa.

Take Kya, a 1-year-old Shiba Inu whose owners took her to go see the life-sized version of her favorite toy.

Or Shea, a 3-year-old Labrador mix whose dad secretly took her to get her glamor North Pole pics done.

Dogs could not be more hyped to meet Santa Paws in the flesh.

And of course dog owners can't help but get in on the action.

You know that rule about how dogs look like their owners? Maybe there's one to be said for dogs who look like their mall Santas.

And if they can't join Santa, what's the harm in putting on the old man's getup and beating him at his own game?

What North Pole is complete without a couple of elves and reindeer, too?

With December just arriving, dogs had the right idea to take photos for Christmas cards weeks upon weeks in advance. 

'Harry Potter' fan creates the world's most magical Christmas tree
Christmas has always been a magical time for Harry Potter fans. The halls of Hogwarts always sparkle with decorations, delectable treats flow, and Mrs. Weasley makes sure Harry and the gang receive heartfelt (if a little frumpy) homemade scarves and sweaters.
