The Awkward Pet Photo Gallery
Presented by PetSmart Charities

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 a photo of me with my two cats, Nigel Fluffnel and Stella Stonepaw.  I got it done by a professional photographer who traveled to my house to take the picture, as Sears would not allow any photos to be taken with pets due to allergy reasons.”

Strike a Pose

Strike a Pose - Misc

“At this point in my life, my pets are my children. I have a dog named Jack and two cats named Lola and Pennie. All three are best friends and hate being apart from one another. This picture is of Pennie. I was questioning her choice of sitting position because it wasn’t exactly flattering her figure. After laughing at her for a couple minutes, I grabbed the camera and snapped a few photos. In this photo she awkwardly stretched, yawned, stuck her tongue out, and let it all hang out. I thought instantly, this is perfect for awkward family photos!”
