We all know the holiday spirit isn’t in the presents or the tree – it’s in the friends and family you spend the season with. But for pets, these symbols of Christmas are all important to their humans. No matter how many times you reassure your pup that Christmas isn’t actually ruined, he won’t shake those puppy dog eyes.

Oh well! In the spirit of the season, let’s forgive these adorable dogs who are really, truly sorry they ruined Christmas.

1. “Guilty.”
