A tail-wagging good time

The third annual Pet Night With Santa was held Tuesday evening at the Marshalltown Mall. Fury friends of all breeds and sizes got to meet Santa Claus and get their picture taken with him. Sponsored by Lori and Todd Egleston, proceeds from the sale of the photos and related memorabilia (snow globes and ornaments) offered to attendees benefit Diamond in the Ruff Rescue, which primarily serves the Marshall/Tama county areas. Pictured with Santa is Chunk, an 8-month-old lab mix, who is available for adoption. Folks will have another opportunity to attend the photo shoot on Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., also at the Marshalltown Mall. For more information, the rescue may be reached at: 515-808-BARK.
