If your pets are members of the family, shouldn’t they be embarrassed with the rest of you? Mike Bender and Doug Chernack, the authors of the New York Times bestselling Awkward Family Photos, bring you Awkward Family Pet Photos (now available). In turns cute, hideous, funny, and always uncomfortable, these real portraits feature families and the pets they love — sometimes too much. That love for pets leads people to do odd things; throw a camera in the mix, and you have instant cringe-worthy memories. I suspect many of these photos were paid for and shot in the 80’s, and as we all know, professionally staged photos from the 80’s are the best kind, especially when they include surly animals. Check out these awkward photos and let us know your favorites!
