Ugly Christmas sweaters are a fine fashion trend for humans during the holidays, but pet owners have taken the tradition to a whole new level.

Central Albertans came out in droves when The Red Deer Advocate asked readers to submit photos of their pets in their holiday best. We had over 200 submissions on our Facebook page and we narrowed the list down to 20 of our favourites.

Calling all #reddeer #centralalberta pet parents. Do you have photos of your fur babies decked out for the holidays?…
