Pet Photo Friday celebrates the season - and long life!
This is a season full of wonder, expectation and fun. With this final week of 2011, many families are taking time away from work and school to enjoy some down time — and pets are a part of that, too!
This week, we feature an assortment of furry and feathered members of the family. From a trio of Beagles and a clowder of cats to two canine pals who enjoy a good game of tug-of-war, you'll get a glimpse inside the daily lives of fellow pet lovers.
One pet had a monumental birthday this past week: Monet the cockatiel turned nearly a quarter of a century old on December 23! This is special, as this species has a lifespan of about 15-20 years, with a small number of birds living to 30 years of age.
Monet and her housemate, Little Houdini, celebrated her hatch day with a bowl of popcorn — their favorite!
In continuing our ongoing Friday Pet Photos feature, we invite you to email a photo of your companion animal to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
