A post-Thanksgiving Pet Photo Friday features playful and sleepy pets

By Lorrie Shaw

Our readers frequently interact here on the pets section, offering interesting and thought-provoking insights from their experiences, or as we see at the end of each week, sharing cute pet photos!

It's always fun to see what our readers' lives are like with their own pets and other animals, and one thing is for certain — people in our community have interesting stories to tell.

This week's photos show so many sides to pets; playful, inquisitive and restful take center stage.

In looking at these adorable photos, you'll have no doubt that cats — from calicos to domestic shorthairs — never suffer from insomnia! You'll also see a pair of dogs on-the-go, and a very sober looking Labrador retriever who looks as though he might have eaten too much turkey.

Photo submissions for future slideshows are always being accepted, and participating in our weekly photo blog is easy! Simply email a photo of your pet, just being him or herself, to any time for our weekly Pet Photo Friday feature.

Be sure to include the name of the animal(s), as well as their age and city or township of residence in your email. Photos should be 1200 pixels wide and in .jpg format.

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