A couple, who must really like their pets, pose completely nude with their animals
While the old saying suggests that a dog is man’s best friend, these people have taken it one step beyond and included their beloved pets – who look petrified – in family portraits.
The result is an eerie, awkward and, most importantly, hilarious catalogue of images – from the baby with the snake coiled around it to the woman armed with a pink shotgun and baby in the bath with her hairy dog.
These photographs, released by www.awkwardfamilypetphotos.com, celebrate the worst family pet portraits from the website – and they plan to release a paperback book on the subject in the autumn.
