Santa Paws

While many art fans hang Van Gogh or Michelangelo prints on their walls, a local doggie daycare hopes Winnipeggers prefer the likes of Guiness and Mischa.

Canines at Woofs 'n Wags daycare and obedience centre are spending the week in "Santa Paw" workshops, creating "impressionist art" to be auctioned off next Monday through Friday.

Proceeds go to D'Arcy's Animal Rescue Centre, the shelter from which many of the dogs were adopted.

"We're a big family here and we really just want to give back to the community and back to dogs who don't have anything," said Woofs 'n Wags owner Nikki Sherwin.

"We're blessed that our dogs are spoiled rotten and loved, but we want to make sure we're doing as much as we can for dogs that need a little extra, especially during the holiday season."
