Santa...the younger years

Kids have furtive imaginations....
cardboard boxes become cars
blankets and chairs transform into camps
.......so what do you get if you combine
Santa's hat and beard
a red nose and fake antlers.....
oh, and the poor pet pooch?

 I am not sure that our pet Westie would have appreciated
being turned into a reindeer when my son was little!!
