Pet Photo Friday: Festive, curious animals are included in this week's slideshow

By Lorrie Shaw

We invite our readers to interact here on the pets section any chance we get, and one thing is evident: people are passionate about their companion animals, no matter what breed they are. And as we see at the end of each week, they like to show off their cute pet photos!

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 pets: one dog angling to get a little (or a lot) of turkey, a festive dog pictured with his feathered friend, a cat who has team spirit and more.

It's all in good fun!

Participating in our weekly photo blog is easy — simply email a photo of your pet 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 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.

I think Tucker is a vizsla. The back yards of lakefront homes I've seen around here don't match Kentucky's lakefront homes. It's better for vizslas to live in states further south, for they do not have the fur undercoats that other dogs do. I notice that none of the dogs drawn by the smell of turkey cooking are sitting; apparently standing IS an indication that they want to EAT some. When I had a yellow labrador, she would get the turkey's organ meats, such as the heart and liver, but would sit several feet away from the oven for over an hour, apparently content just to savor the smell.

I could not stop laughing at that poor dog being decorated. Reminds me of the time the cat brought down our parents tree. What a mess. Glad ours leaves things alone.
