Pets of all shapes and sizes will be able to join the festive family portrait at the Bunbury Forum this year, as Santa sets up shop next door to Red Dot on Saturday.

Santa said he was taking time out of his busy toy making schedule to visit the pets and children of the South West.

“The elves are still up there working and I have Mrs Claus still looking after them while I am here, but I will have to leave shortly to go back to the North Pole,” he said.

“I love pets myself, I have got quite a few at home – the more pets the happier I am.

“I have reindeer up at the North Pole, but when I get to Australia, I use my six white boomers.”

Mr Claus said plenty of dogs and rabbits had been booked in to pay him a visit, but he encouraged critters of all kinds.

“If you have a pet snake or a pet kangaroo – they are all welcome.”
