Many children are already queuing up to see santa to tell him what is on their wish list for Christmas.
But this weekend an event will cater for other family members who are also eager to see Father Christmas and put in a request for some festive treats.
The Forum, in Norwich, is once again holding its popular Santa's Grotto for Dogs on Saturday, December 9, between 10am and 4pm.
Visitors can bring their pets to meet Santa Woof Woof - Father Christmas' representative in the canine world - and take a free 'pawtrait' to share with friends and family.
Organisers promise that this year's grotto is better than ever and features a new festive design, with owners and dogs encouraged to join in the fun and come in festive fancy dress.
