Pope Francis is in the middle of his historic trip to the United States, and some people are choosing to commemorate his visit in a rather strange — but super cute — way.

Dog owners are using the hashtag #popedog to share photos on Instagram of their pooches decked out in papal attire. From Poms to Pugs to Brussels Griffons, more and more dogs seem to be getting in on the fun.

And dressing like the pope isn’t just for dogs, either. A few cats and even a bunny have joined in on the trend.

Of all the ways people have celebrated the pope’s visit, we bet Pope Francis never expected this. But these #popedogs sure do have our blessing.
