First, I had no idea that Santa has a dog.  But, now we know because Santa was caught on video this morning walking his dog on Broadway in downtown Rochester. 🎅

I know we've had a few surprise Santa spottings in town recently but this is one that I'm not sure anyone had on their radar.  I know we had a big parade of cars to see Santa around Thanksgiving in downtown Rochester, and Santa has been spotted at ABC and Toy Zone.  He's also been scheduling Zoom visits with kids through Y-105FM, Rochester's Christmas Station.  But walking his dog, I would have thought that he would have sent out one of his elves for this task, especially with his busy schedule right now.

If you weren't up at 6:04 am to catch Santa in downtown Rochester, don't worry, Bucky Beeman snapped a video and let me share that for you.  You can see it here.

I guess Santa does need to keep his exercise up.  He has a few million cookies that he will be eating soon!
