We apologise profusely in advance if any of the below are your family members but maybe next year tell them to leave the dog out of the photo.
Here are our 17 favourite awkward family dog photos of all time… Be prepared:
1. You can put me down now.
2. I just don't get it.
3. Might wanna work better on your positioning next time…
4. Please don't dye your dog's hair. And definitely don't try and match it to yours!
5. Not sure which photo the dog looks more unhappy in…
6. Mary and Joseph and the Frenchie? Not sure that was it…
7. Now that's a pair of seriously embarrassed Dalmations.
8. To be fair, that's compassion for you.
9. We hope this was not the final version to be printed.
10. They got their dogs involved in the family cheer squad…
11. Is it me or does that girl's hair match the German Shepherd's?
12. Never try and match a Jack Russell… This could happen.
13. Now this couple definitely think their dogs are their kids!
14. We're not sure whose hair he spends more time coiffing…
15. Couldn't you have left it at the wallpaper?
17. Ok now that's just plain scary.
