This chilly, slushy Saturday was pretty “meh” by most standards; that is, unless you spent your afternoon at the inaugural PuppyCon. Santa-clad dogs convened at Turnstyle, the underground shopping center at Columbus Circle, where they lapped up Bowser Beerand posed in a holiday photo booth at Dog & Co. For those who did not make it out for the ruff-elry, these Instagrams capture what you missed.

 

Plenty of dogs sat on Santa's lap, showing varying degrees of good cheer:

 

Oh hi Santa. 🎅 #puppycon

Some rolled deep:

And a few were tuckered out from all the excitement:

Even Santa needs his beauty sleep. #donotdisturb #puppycon

Being Santa is exhausting. I don't know how he does it. #puppycon2016 #puppycon

There were even a couple meet-cutes ("Dogs, Actually")?
