Gary Angell knows which doggies have been naughty and which have been nice — and he knows which ones need anti-flea shampoo!
Angell, the co-owner of the Greenpoint pooch grooming and training collective My Two Dogs, shared the Yuletide spirit with man’s best friend by dressing as Santa and posing for photos with puppies.
And because Angell was the man in red, the pooches were happy to be Santa’s little helpers.
“He has groomed a lot of them, so they figured out who it was pretty quickly,” said his wife and business partner Annie Angell. “We wanted to get the dogs in here without them feeling too anxious or too rushed.”
Santa helped raise more than $400 and met more than 60 dogs — and one cat.
“The cat was really good,” said Annie Angell.
