Christmas might be just around the corner but there are still a couple of working weeks to trudge through.

And even at this festive, feel-good time of year, it can still be hard to shake those Monday blues. But fear not because a bunch of pups and doggos are here to bless your timeline and wish you a Merry Christmas.

Twitter accounts owned by dogs and dog owners have been sharing some glorious pictures of canines in costume.

Several are giving dear old Saint Nick, aka Santa Claus, their annual visit.

It's two of the best things in the world - dogs and Christmastime - put together, so turn that frown upside down and let the 'awwwwww's commence.
