Yes, I'm just as guilty of the awkward pet photo but damn, I loved that dog.
I’m a dog lover. I’ve pretty much owned a dog my entire life. Not the same dog, of course, but you know what I mean.
For most of my adult life I’ve owned Max. He’s a Black Labrador Retriever who is absolutely awesome with my kids. A few years ago Milo became a part of our family. He’s also a Black Lab Retriever who isn’t quite as careful around the kids. He’s full of love, just a little excitable.
I’ve taken thousands of photos of the dogs with the kids but never anything like what I’m seeing over on Awkward Family Pet Photos.
Okay, that’s a lie. I just remembered this photo shoot we surprised my mom with when I was 16 years old. That photo right up there is of me and my brothers and our beloved dog, Spliffy, who lived to the ripe age of 19. He just died last year. Yes, I had a small addiction to tanning beds. And shut up, matching denim totally rules. But listen, that photo is nothing compared to what you’re about to see.
Do you include your pet in family photos? Take a look at what some folks are hanging on the walls of the family room these days:
Aww.. So Cute!
Wait, is that a skunk? What the?
Cat Lovers In Love
I'm not sure which cats are real and which are part of the awesome graphics package this couple signed up for.
Gotta love this dog even though I can't imagine the purpose behind commissioning this photograph of a dog in a feather boa.
Everything about this photo is completely normal... and then there's the cat. What's propping him up back there? Is someone crouching behind the couple or is he clinging to the man's shirt?
What Exactly Is Going On Here?
I will pay you good money if you can tell me the theme behind this photo. Is that a stripper pole?
Did He Bring His Snake To School For Picture Day?
I actually think the bang braid is more alarming than the snake.
Is she riding them like a horse cart? Are those reigns?
Beauty And The Beast
I actually like this photo. Can't resist a cute pig.
Do They Know He’s Up There?
Everything about this family photo screams normal... Except the dog on the roof.
Our Country Christmas
So the rooster's name is Harry Joe Larry? I can dig that.
How YOU Doin’?
Do you think he dyed his hair to match his pets?
This is Totally My Favorite
Seriously, WHAT is she wearing?
Like Mother, Like Daughter
I love how they're peering around a curtain...
Just The Three Of Us
This dog is totally scream-whispering "HELP ME! HELP ME!" Just look at his eyes.
Gazing Into The Distance
Don't these two totally look alike?
There are so many things wrong with this photo I don't even know where to begin.
Just us gals hangin' out and havin' fun.
Another super sweet graphic to jazz up the photo.
Is that a real tiger? Because it almost makes more sense if it's real.
No Pets Were Harmed In The Making Of This Photograph
Are these two lovers or siblings? Any guesses?
Beam Me Up
I'm trying to envision the discussion that went down with the photographer about the concept of this photo shoot. "Okay, we'll get the dog and add a spaceship like the aliens are beaming you up. It'll be AMAZING!"
Something Stinks In Suburbia
What is the deal with skunks?
Photographer: "Gorgeous, AMAZING. Don't move. Yes. Yes! This is brilliant. You are going to love this!"
Just Monkeying Around
Dude, that monkey is pissed. I hope everyone is okay.
When Dogs Take Over
I guess this family is really into Pugs. Ya think?
