The pope has already visited D.C., and will also go to New York and Philadelphia.

Some of the pope's fans are so excited for his trip, they are getting dressed up for the special occasion.

Since Pope Francis landed in the U.S., people have been dressing up their pups as #popedogs and posting the images on social media. It's exploding in popularity.

For good reason, obviously.

Just look at this adorable Pope John Paw-l.

And this Pup Francis.

Don't worry though, if you don't want to spring for a fancy costume, you can still have a papal pup if you get creative.

Or improvise with things you already have.

Stay #blessed, pope dogs.
