When Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it's up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn (America's Got Talent's Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan's Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about.

There are many movies that I get tired of watching over and over again with the kids, but Santa Paws is one that I like to watch. It has helped our family get into the Christmas spirit and reminds us that we need to give to those less fortunate.
Evan's absolute favorite part is after Quinn finds him and they are all singing in their room. He has memorized most of that song and asks me to rewind it over and over so he can sing it. Isabella even gets up and dances when this song comes on. She twirls around the room. The picture below isn't the exact scene, but it is of the girls that are in his favorite part.
We took it to my parents' house so they could watch Evan and Isabella dance to the song. Everyone loved the DVD and my sister even cried. It is a DVD that the whole family will enjoy watching together.
This isn't the song that the girls sing in their room, but it is a fun Santa Paws music video. It is part of the Bonus Features that my kids also love to watch again and again.
The Santa Cause:
As parents, we pass down the stories and traditions of Santa Claus. Even if we can’t think of a logical explanation as to how he visits every home on one night or why there are so many Santa look-alikes all around town each December, it is important that we support the true meaning of Christmas and the Santa Cause. Kids ask us tough questions all the time, and this one, like many others, is one that doesn’t come with a clear-cut answer. The simplest thing is to tell your children to have faith and to just believe. Children love magic, so if you just explain that Santa is magical, that should hopefully help them understand the underlying spirit of Christmas.
Santa Claus is a wonderful tradition, and establishing traditions in your family that get passed down from generation to generation—such as baking cookies for Santa and his elves each Christmas Eve or leaving carrots out for his reindeer—helps create a bond between you and your children. It also makes the holiday more meaningful, memorable and fun for kids, who otherwise might complain about wearing a coat and tie to Christmas Eve dinner at grandma’s. So despite the fact that logic may tell you otherwise, make a point of teaching your children about Santa Claus, his 8 tiny reindeer, his sleigh, his workshop and of course, his best friend, Paws.
