Santa Claus OH MY! I definently would do this. Reminds me of potty training Alex to pee off the deck.
Our own German Shepherd....who hated cats......also took in a stray kitten which the neighbors had abandoned when they moved. Not only did he let the little one eat food out of his dish, he also let her sleep under his chin, between his front legs. We could never get a photograph, but these come close.
