Hi, I'm Sawyer the Labrador! This is my Dress Up Your Pet Day photo!

In honor of Monday’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day, furry friends across America proved to be good sports, allowing themselves to be dressed up in costumes for the holiday and posing for photo-ops in living rooms from coast to coast.

The Jan. 14 special day, sponsored by the Animal Miracle Foundation, was about “celebrating the bond between humans and pets and to promote adoption,” according to the day’s founder Colleen Paige.

And how could you not bond with these lovable lookers? readers sent in pictures of their pets wearing everything from hard hats to a doctor's smock. Here are some of our favorites:
