Nothing says Fourth of July like fireworks, barbecues — and pet parades. It's hard not to feel proud to be an American when you see our four-legged friends daintily making their way down the hot summer pavement wrapped up in red, white and blue.

Here are ten stylish pups parading through the streets of the USA to celebrate our nation's independence.

You know all the other canines were totally envious of this little lady when she paraded down the street in her best Fourth of July attire. We're impressed by her lovely ruffled dress and her amazing sunglasses.

Is it a star spangled sarong or a flag-printed loincloth? Either way, we're sure this pooch turned heads at the Independence Day parade.

This pair has it all goin' on: Striped pants, a star-patterned crop top and some classic Ray Ban shades are all the ingredients for a stupendous Fourth of July parade costume.

This pooch is a minimalist. Hats off to his simple — and spirited — patriotic style.

A service dog in training looks proud and honorable carrying those American flags. And what better way to show your American spirit than by serving your community? Good dog.

This all-American pup caught a ride to the parade in a flag-decked stroller. That's the best way to see the sights!

According to his Flickr page, this canine won the "best smile" award at a Fourth of July parade. We agree with the judges — he definitely deserves that title!

With those ruffled collars, these Golden Retrievers almost look like they time travelled to the parade from 1776. We assume they spent the rest of the day in pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Or maybe just some yummy treats.

America is a melting pot, and not just when it comes to people. Basset Hound. Rottweiler. Westie. We love that there are so many different dog breeds participating in this parade.

This Husky wants you! After all, he almost looks like Uncle Sam in his red, white and blue hat.
