Dogs Dress Up for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

England is ablaze with celebrations this week for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, celebrating her 60 years as a monarch. And what better way to get in the spirit than to dress up your pets in awesome costumes?

Queen Elizabeth II loves dogs — she has three Corgis and three Corgi-Dachshund mixes — and we think she'd be proud to see these patriotic pooches.

Here are our favorite dog pictures from the celebrations. We even threw in some chimpanzees for good measure!

There's nothing like classic flags to show some love for your country.

British swag! We bet Layla here dreams of fish and chips and playing fetch with the Queen.

While we don't recommend painting your dog, blue and red definitely bring out this pup's features.

Diamond Jubilee 1

We can't get over how cute this little guy looks in his red, white and blue lei.

OK, OK. We know these aren't dogs, but we couldn't resist! The Edinburgh Zoo presented its chimpanzees with special treats in Union Jack and royal crown sacks.
