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.

Meowy Christmas

Meowy Christmas - Pets

“This photo was taken in my basement while I was living in North Dakota with my ex-husband. The photographer kept asking me if the cat ( Toonces) was going to bite him? My answer was “yes he’s a cat , take the picture”. If you notice my ex was trying not to bust out laughing while I was keeping a death grip on Toonces!”

Cat Fight

Cat Fight - Pets

“Every year we take our cats to visit Santa at PetSmart. Bella has done it for the last five years and last year was Bristol’s first year (we adopted him through PetSmart Charities that August). As soon as we got him close to Santa, he went crazy. Thanks to an attentive photographer, we got this photo. I’m not sure which makes me laugh more, Bristol’s reaction to Santa or the fact that Bella is not at all fazed by her brother’s reaction to him.”
