Pet Photo Friday: show off your furry and feathered friends

By Lorrie Shaw


The snowy weather has provided an ideal opportunity and find things to do outdoors — and that goes for companion animals, too!

Did you get in a little sledding perhaps, or a fun walk? With these bitterly cold days, some pets just preferred being close to the fire.

Knowing that there are many fun-loving pets that live in and around our area, we're anxious to see what you've been up to. Why not submit a favorite photo of your pet?

Any pet or animal in the family is welcome in the slideshow we feature each Friday.

In continuing our ongoing Friday Pet Photos feature, we invite you to email a photo of your companion animal to, any time during the week.

Participating in this fun feature is easy — simply include your companion animal's name, age and city or township of residence in your email. Be sure that your photos are 1200 pixels wide and in .jpg format.

We put the week's photos into a slideshow, publish it and promote it each Friday here in the Pets section. Check out past slideshows here.
