Santa Loving Dog Gets to Meet St. Nick

Pet News: Shiba Inu Puppy Meets Her Idol

Pet lovers everywhere do it. You start seeing the signs posted in the mall before Thanksgiving is even over. Pet News: Pose with Santa! You get the family, and of course the dog altogether, ugly Christmas sweaters and all, and wait to get your chance to tell Uncle Nick what you want for Christmas. It is the cornerstone of the many precursors all leading to December 25th, just as traditional as egg nog and lazing around watching football and re-runs of “The Christmas Story.”


However this pet news Inside Edition brings a special story to the countless magical stories of the season. A 1-year-old Shiba Inu named Kya absolutely loves Santa Claus. It all started when her owners—siblings John Montaldo (16), and Angelina (19)—bought her a Santa chew toy for Christmas. Kya absolutely loved the doll and pretty soon the two were inseparable. This is not for the first time for pet news—a dog finding the real live version of their chew toy, and, well, freaking out. In a good way!


We at Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique love reporting on happy pet news, and from the look on this little girl’s face, you can tell it is good news. The video was uploaded by Inside Edition, and is titled “Dog Obsessed With Santa Claus Can\’t Stop Smiling When Meeting Her Idol at Mall.”


Please enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
