What a large Christmas Photo Contest this turned out to be! In 2010, over 400 entries were submitted, about double last year's total.
And happily, about 100 pet entries were a part of those submissions! Pet doggies, kitties and other animals look adorable ALL of the time, of course....but they look especially cute at Christmas time. Some dress up as kitty Santas or doggie elves. Others pose by the Christmas tree...or even sit on Santa's lap!
In the 2010 Christmas contest entries below, you'll enjoy viewing this year's entries that feature cute, sweet...and even whimsical...pet dogs, cats, and even a few other types of animals, too!
