The Awkward Pet Photo Gallery <br /> <small style=Presented by PetSmart Charities - Photos" />

We love our pets and treat them like family but let’s face it, sometimes our love can go a little overboard. We throw them elaborate birthday parties, we take them to the mall with us to sit on santa’s lap (even though they have no idea who the big, bearded guy is), we hug them a little too tightly…

To commemorate the holiday season, we are proud to present, in partnership with PetSmart Charities, the Awkward Pet Photo Gallery – a safe place for owners to showcase their unconditional affection for their pets.

And we are inviting you to submit your own awkward pet pics until 12/21. The pet photo deemed the most lovably awkward will receive signed copies of the New York Times-bestselling Awkward Family Pet Photos book.

See the gallery below. Submit your own pics here.

Your donations help PetSmart Charities find a lifelong, loving home for every pet.

“This is my cat (Gus) and dog (Honey Pie).  Honey wouldn’t sit down next to me so I thought it would be a good idea to hold her and Gus.  While my sister was getting ready to take the photo they both started fighting.  This photo is the end result. That is the look of true fear on my face of being mauled by my cat!”
