Knowing that there are many fun-loving pets living in the area, we're anxious to see what they've been up to.

Have you captured a really fun photo of your pet? Why not submit a favorite photo of them?

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

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

This week's slideshow is special: we want to see your pets being extra good. You'll recall that last week, the topic of Dog Faming was featured. Knowing how many loveable pets share lives with our readers and are a joy to be around, we want to feature them being at their best.

How have you caught your pet being good lately? Share your photo, along with a little back story on what they do best. Do they give a "sit" when you ask for it? What about when you open a entry door -- do they stay back from it when it's opened, despite their curiosity? Do they avoid diving for dropped food when you accidentally drop something?

Along with a brief description of your dog's good behavior, 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 1,200 pixels wide and in .jpg format.

We'll put the photos into a slideshow, publish and promote it on Friday on our new home, on MLive.
