14 Years ago I ventured to Gibsons, BC to volunteer as the photographer for the Sunshine Coast SPCA Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser. This annual event has come to mark the beginning of the Christmas season for me. The dedication of the volunteers, support of the local businesses, and the enthusiasm of the attendees have all contributed to the success of this event. While the dogs have definitely been out in numbers, we have a following of dedicated cat lovers, and over the years we have seen guinea pigs, a hen, ferrets and others. This fine fellow just joined his family five days ago.
