Pawliday Crush: 12 Pet Baes of Christmas We Love

Posted by Stacey Venzel

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a pug sitting by the Christmas tree.

Famous pet Instagrammers are alive with the holiday spirit, and we'd be lying if we said we didn't have a crush on them all.

In case you're experiencing some winter blues, we thought we'd bring you holiday cheer mixed with cuteness overload.

Without further ado, we present to you the 12 baes of Christmas, pet-style.

1. Doug the Pug

Christmas costumes already used by this pooch include a snowman, Santa, elf, gingerbread man, and enough ugly sweaters for every day of December. We know there will be more.

2. Mason the Rabbit

This fluffball cruises through Washington snow like it ain't no thang. He also eats really adorably.

 3. Toast the King Charles

Is it time to start watching Elf???? @muppetsrevenge @underpantsthedog ??????

Toast often hangs out with siblings Muppet and Pants. Sometimes in the bathtub. Dressed like elves.

4. Tuna the Chiweenie

Like many of her famous Instadogger friends, Tuna is an active philanthropist... who happens to look pretty cute with a white beard.

 5. Chloe the Kardoggian

Catch my awesome #bogo announcement video yesterday on EVERYTHING in my shop? Gifts, stickers, cards... My gift to you! ????

Chloe's Insta feed is filled with sleigh-riding and festive cosplay. We're hooked.

6. Bella the Doberman

This snowman pic is just the start of this pup proving her bae-worthiness.

7. Ponyo the Guinea Pig

Never have we seen a cavy wear more hats (figuratively and literally). Ponyo is often joined by other guinea pig friends in his photos, just to make us spazz over our phone screens.

8. Paddington the Shar Pei

Paddington and his human already make greeting cards together in Australia. We're holding out for some Christmas cards made up of photos like this.

9. Olive the Hound Mix

Somebody's gonna pay for this shit!............Make it stop @gumpythecoonhound

A photo posted by A Hound With An Agenda (@a_hound_with_an_agenda) on

Olive likes to wear her ugly sweaters in non-traditional fashion. She's a rescue pup; she can do what she wants.

 10 & 11. Izzy and Zoe the Cats

Izzy and Zoe couldn't wait to climb the Christmas tree, but at least they waited until the photo shoot was done.

 12. Basil the Golden Retriever

"Ruh roh. I just learned that 'Christmas trees' aren't for eating." ?? #ruhroh #guiltyface #christmastree #basilsgoldenlife

Basil has a different idea of how to use the Christmas tree. We approve.

Too cute to handle, right? It's okay, we'll share our pawliday crushes with you.
