Erin go…bark? Every holiday gives the gift of festive dog costumes, and St. Patrick’s Day is no different. You owe it to yourself to put down your pint of Guinness and look at these very good St. Patrick’s Day dogs. If you have the luck of the Irish with you, you might get to see some festively decked out doggies on the streets IRL. In case you don’t, though, you can find plenty of St. Patrick’s Day dogs online — which seems pretty lucky too.
Of course, most people’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations involve drinking green beer and horoing any drop of Irish blood they may or may not actually have. That’s great and all, but St. Patrick’s Day parades are where it’s really at. You might want to check out your city’s parade, both for the festivities and for the doggo action. You’ll almost definitely spot one or two green-clad dogs if you go to a parade, and you might even gain a new perspective on St. Patrick’s Day.
For instance, did you know that the original color associated with St. Patrick’s Day is blue? But that doesn’t mean you need to rip off your green derby hat. If you do end up ditching the hat, just make sure you give it to a dog to make someone’s day.
Because look at how cute these St. Patrick’s Day dogs are!
Here’s a leprechaun dog! This dog’s owner definitely has some luck going for them.
And then there’s this dog playing amongst clovers.
They are probably all four leaf clovers, too, because that dog seems extra lucky.
Don’t want to wear your shamrock gear? Give it to your dog!
It makes for the cutest accessory.
And you can lend them your green beads too.
In fact, you should.
Even if this dog isn’t an Irish Terrier, it clearly still feels the spirit.
And you will want to give him a kiss no matter what.
Apparently they make dog-sized derby hats too!
Thank dog for that.
This dog wants you to have a great St. Pawtrick’s Day.
Any dog, big or small, can celebrate!
This one definitely falls under the “small” category.
Sparkly green bows are greatly appreciated today.
Thanks to all these cute St. Patrick’s Day dogs, this may just be the best St. Paddy’s Day yet. Shoutout to all the adorable dogs who are celebrating in style.
