Kya the dog finally had the chance to meet her favourite toy in real life and it was worth every cent. Kya is a Shiba pooch who has been obsessed with her Santa toy since the day she first set eyes on it. One of the sibling owners, John and Angelina, told Bored Pands, “She’s always carrying her Santa toy around with her and kept it through the whole year… Whenever we are just sitting on the couch watching TV she also brings it and just kinda sits with it and licks it.”
When the owners heard that Santa was taking pictures with pets, they knew it was time for Kya to meet her favourite toy in person. As you can see by the pictures she was not disappointed when she met the real Father Christmas. A lot of people in the store were having pictures taken with their pets and Santa but John and Angelina knew this moment was for Kya and Kya alone.
They took their other dog, Lucy, who freaked out upon seeing Santa, whereas Kya who is the usual hyper, crazy one of the two was very calm and composed. Angelina said, “[Kya] usually misbehaves when we take her to Petsmart, but she was behaving for Santa.” She spent quite some time staring at Santa but when her moment came for the photo she didn’t disappoint.
The siblings don’t regret the $30 picture, Kya looked like she was smiling as she sat next to Santa. They shared the dogs “OMG” reaction online and it went viral. Kay seems to be having the best time ever, she has the biggest smile! “She was definitely the most excited dog there.”
Kya loves her Santa toy whether it’s Christmas or not.
