Your pet holds a special place in your heart, which means it's only fitting a dog Christmas ornament or cat Christmas ornament with their name on it gets front-and-center placement on the Christmas tree. Yes, that ornament celebrating your daughter's graduation is important, but so is that paw-shaped ornament with a portrait of Fido's smiling face on it!

For many, buying new ornaments each year is a tradition to help commemorate the last year. And what better way to celebrate the most important member of the family than to hang up an ornament in their honor (after hanging their stocking on the mantle).

If this is not something you already do, this could be a great way to start a meaningful family tradition of getting a new pet ornament each Christmas to celebrate another year of your furry friend bringing joy into your life.

We've rounded up 23 of our favorite pet Christmas ornaments that represent the love we feel for our loyal four-legged friends. Pro-tip: Since some pets have a tendency to knock ornaments over with their excited tails, just make sure to place any breakable items toward the top of the tree so they can stay intact.
