Santa Paws is coming to town. ..

WE LOVE Christmas almost as much as we love our pets. Combine the two and it's a fabulous festive combination.

ECHO readers have once again inundated us with pictures of their furry friends in their best bib and baubles, all ready for Santa Paws' arrival on December 25.

You will find galleries of the images submitted on our website: www.liverpoolecho.co.uk and today we share some with you in print.

There is everything here, from cats in Father Christmas hats to turtles dressed as (what else) doves and dogs in tinsel.

We received more than 100 pictures from readers, who all wanted to let us know about their pets. Camilla Mottran said of her two-year old pug, Rocky: "He loves opening his presents on Christmas morning, especially when there are tasty treats inside."

Wendy Moulton, of Old Swan, sent us a picture of her cat, saying: "Even at the age of 16 years, George still loves to play Santa Paws."

Lennon the Dalmatian, from West Derby, is named after the famous Beatle.

Owner Roy Dwan said: "He just adores his teddies and will get a new one for Christmas."

Keep checking our website for .more Santa Paws pics.
