Pups of all ages were given the chance to meet their festive hero as Santa Paws returned to Norwich.
After a knockout debut in 2014, the Santa's Grotto for Dog's returned to The Norwich Forum on Saturday for the sixth year in a row, with hundreds of pooches and their owners queueing round the block to meet Santa Woof Woof.
While some were over the moon to pose with the 6ft half-dog, half-human Santa hybrid, others approached the grotto with trepidation.
Jayne Evans, events and partnerships manager at The Forum, said: "Santa's Grotto for Dogs is the highlight of my Christmas. This is the sixth year and none of us ever dreamed it would be so popular. Seeing so many dogs, in Christmas outfits, and all the happy families gathering for a bit of seasonal silliness - and donating money to local animal charities - is always a huge delight."
The event is expected to have raised thousands for the local RSPCA branch.
