National Dress Up Your Pet Day is here!  Finally, the chance to celebrate canine couture, feline fashion, and animal style courtesy of these four-legged fashionistas found on Instagram.

No one is more fashionable than Doug the Pug.  He has the best collection of sweaters and sweatshirts, isn’t afraid to show his love for pizza, and is the king of selfies.

It doesn’t matter if Tucker is wearing jammies or jackets, he always looks adorable when he is doing his court support pet assisted therapy visits.

When it comes to Iggys (that’s the nickname for Italian Greyhounds), clothing isn’t just about fashion, it’s about functionality.  These little dogs can get chilly quite quickly, making cold weather clothing a necessity. No one wears fleece better than Lily and Angelo.

Sometimes it’s just about accessorizing, and these two Mini Aussies, Mika and Cali, really know how to wear hats, scarves, and bows.

When you are a hairless cat, clothing is not optional as you need to look good staying warm and you also need to look good while protecting yourself from the sun. These kitties make it all look very fashion-forward.

These trained felines take costuming to a whole new level.  My dogs are totally jealous of these cosplaying cats.

Once again proving the importance of well-matched accessories, here’s a cat who wears hats and sunnies.

Never afraid to go for the laugh, Ashton Milk Mustache, is sure to make you smile with his costume choices.

Beautiful cats in sparkly bow ties is something we just need a bit more of in this world.

And just in case you thought dress up was just for dogs and cats, these guinea pigs are here to show you that fashion is for everyone.
