Your kid may cry when he sees Santa, but just don't let your dog bite the man.

From noon to 4 p.m., on Sat., Dec. 7, at Poitin Stil bar located at 1502 W Jarvis Ave., dog owners can have their pets take a photo with Santa for the fourth annual "Pictures With Santa" event. As long as the dog is well-behaved, the photo can be with or without the owner.

The hosts of this event are the Pottawattomie Dog Friendly Area (DFA) and Bark Place located at 7340 N. Rogers Ave.

The $10 charge for each pose, taken by nonprofit organization Picture Peace, will be used to raise funds for maintenance and park improvements, according to the Ward 49 website.

Pottawattomie Park is named after the Pottawattomie (Potawatomi) Indians, one of nine tribal groups living around the Great Lakes after 1600. There is a Works Progress Administration painting in the field house featuring the tribe.
