Albany -- Two of Santa's helpers are also among man's best friends. Jerry Tillman dresses his dogs, Daisy and Duke, as reindeer for the holidays.

Tillman and his "rein-dogs" bring holiday cheer when they visit nursing homes and schools.

They also just go out and about hoping to bring smiles to those who may be feeling a little stressed out by the holiday hustle and bustle.

"I've been doing this for about almost 15 years. It got to be such an enjoyable thing that people take pictures of them, stop and ask for their names and everything. Not only that, I like to see people smile during Christmas," said Jerry Tillman.

Tillman says 14-year old Daisy and 4-year old Duke look forward to putting their antlers on and are ready to play dress up every morning.
