It's Christmas time and we've all been getting into the festive spirit, including the four-legged furry cuties among us...

We asked News Shopper readers to send us in the best pictures of their festive pets.

From Christmassy pups and kittens to horses and hamsters, here are some of the most adorable snaps.

Love the jumpers on these three handsome chaps!
