It was a dog day afternoon on Saturday as I was assigned to photograph pets having their pictures taken with Santa Claus in Sonoma. During a lull in the action, a living Christmas tree appeared.

One year-old Maury Lane gets a kick out of her sister Maya Boone, 12, of Sonoma as Boone models the latest in Christmas fashion, created by artist Margaret Hatcher Saturday Dec. 4, 2010. The fashion was part of the Sonoma Community Centers art sale which also featured hand made art, paintings and a chance to have your pet photographed with Santa. (Kent Porter / Press Democrat) 2010
