No awkward family portrait is complete without your beloved awkward furry friend! Every pet owner knows that. Whether it’s an awkward cat, dog, hamster or even a fish, now is the time to show these little companions off. This Sunday, December 15 from 1 to 6PM, Bushwick Bark, a cute little pet store on Knickerbocker Ave, is teaming up with Three Diamond Door bar to throw another crazy pet party. (We hear that their previous costumed doggie crawl collaboration went extremely well, and there were a lot of happy pet hangovers the next day).

So how can you take part in the First Annual Awkward Family Pet Photo Shoot? It’s simple. Come down to Three Diamond Door this Sunday proudly wearing your ugliest sweater (or if you don’t have any ugly sweaters at home, Bushwick Bark will gladly provide you with one), bring your furry creature along, and strike an awkward pose! Just not too awkward…

Bushwick Bark will be collecting suggested donation of $10. All proceeds will go directly to Empty Cages Collective, a Brooklyn based rescue and adoption organization.

And you never know…Maybe your pet is on its way to becoming an internet meme, and the next thing you know you’ll be hiring a famous pet manager like Ben Lashes.
