Area pets who love the great outdoors are at the center of Pet Photo Friday
It's always fun to see what our readers' lives are like with their own pets and other animals, and there are always interesting stories to tell.
This week, you'll see all sorts of cute pets, including a German Shepherd, a very tired pooch and cat who loves the garden.
It's all in good fun!
Participating in our weekly photo blog is easy — simply email a photo of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 1,200 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.
