Pictures have flooded in for our Santa Paws 2018 gallery, and we are overcome with cuteness.

The large majority of entries were pups rocking Father Christmas hats or elf outfits.

However we were pleased to see a few cats, including Arthur and Max, modelling their Christmas attire.

Entries weren’t limited to the furry variety and we even had the owner of a snake called Calli and a millipede called Milli send in snaps of their beloved pets.
