This past week saw the snow arrive, and with the weather here early this week, it was an ideal opportunity and find things to do outdoors — and that goes for companion animals, too!

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?

Did your dog see the snow for the first time? Did you capture their reaction? The snowfall prompted many families to build a fire in the fireplace — did your favorite feline find a spot near it to stay warm?

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 ppsa2mi@gmail.com, 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.
