20 Weird, Funny and VERY Awkward Family Pet Photos

Via Awkward Family Photos.

There's something about gathering the whole fam-damily for a nice group portrait that invites things to go hilariously awry. And what could cause that family picture to get even weirder and more awkward? Adding pets to the mix, of course! They are members of the family, after all!

Check out the following extremely awkward family photos that were made 100% more bizarre (and funny!) by adding a furry/feathered/scaly friend or five.

Dear Prudence...

Via Awkward Family Photos.

Oh dear... that doesn't look right at all!

According to Awkward Family Photos:

“Our family went to the local portrait studio with our dog, Prudence. My dad, who loved her very much, considered her a member of the family and therefore wanted her to be a part of the photo. When we posed for the picture, Prudence would not stay still so my Dad straddled the bench to keep her still. This photo hung in our house for years, and, the truth is, we were oblivious about its awkwardness until a close friend pointed it out.”

This Dog Is Very Excited

Whoa, this dog is excited to be included in this picture. Like... really excited.

From Awkward Family Photos

“Last summer we took a bunch of family photos at the beach.  For Christmas, my husband’s step-mom had this one blown up and printed on canvas for us as a gift.  When we unwrapped the picture, there was quite a surprise.  She hadn’t noticed.”

Cats: Not Caring for Centuries

Via Reddit.

Redditor CallMeBigWolf posted this image along with the caption, "Going through some old family photos when I found this."

It just goes to show you that historically speaking, cats have never given a single care.

Next time, maybe Junior here will think twice before stuffing his pockets with bacon before the photo shoot.

Ah, Memories

Nothing says "good family times" like a good old fashioned dog bite. 

This picture would fit in perfectly with these other family portraits that went hilariously wrong.

Nice couple, but they have some of the ugliest children I've ever seen.  Terribly ill-mannered, too.
