ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Valley View Mall opened their doors to four-legged family members who wanted to get a picture with Santa Claus.
It's called Pet Night with Santa and dog lovers where dawning large smiles as they posed with their furry children.
"I never knew that they did this before I came in here on black friday so it's actually pretty cool to get to bring him into the mall to do it," said dog owner McKenzie Wyatt.
Other pup parents, like Lauren Rippee, came to create lasting memories. "It's a memory that I'll definitely cherish forever as they get older. It's something to look back on," said Rippee.
The mall doesn't have any other Pet Night with Santa events planned for this season.
