Oklahoma Pet Tales: Canine helpers assist in finding Santa Claus

My husband is the principal at Putnam City West High School. He was on Spring Break and fixing things around the house. Our dogs (Brady the Airedale and Harriet the wire fox terrier) are a huge part of our family. They are both rescue dogs (we have always had rescue dogs), and they join in any project that is going on. My husband was removing the fireplace insert and, as you can see, he had plenty of help! I took this picture without them knowing it (yes, I got his permission to send in a picture of his backside). I couldn’t believe I caught them all looking up there at the same time. It definitely looks like they’re looking for Santa Claus!
