JACKSON TWP.: Some Santas are born jolly. Some have jolly thrust upon them.

Ken Dexter, a 48-year-old Massillon factory welder posing with dogs and cats at PetSmart on Saturday, first donned the red suit for the Stark County Humane Society 15 years ago.

It was the first time he volunteered for the annual photo session, and the female Santa was having a rough day, Dexter remembered.

 ”She was very impatient,” he said.

”’Look,’ I said, ‘these people are here to take a picture. They want a good picture.’ And I said, ‘Why don’t you just have a little bit of patience with them?’ She goes, ‘Well, if you think you can do a better job . . . here.’ She stopped right in front of the kids. Took her Santa suit off right in front of the kids and handed it to me. So ever since then, I’ve done it.”
