Pet Photo Friday offers readers an opportunity to showcase their animals

That familiar crispness is in the air, as is the faint smell of fallen leaves. It's good time of year to get outside and blow off some steam or to hunker down and find things to do indoors — 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?

Perhaps you got a fun photo of your dog relishing this unusual bit of November warmth. Did you catch your cat snoozing in a sunpuddle?

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, 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.

The dog in the photo looks like Buddy, the resident companion at Sunrise Assisted Living up on Plymouth. He is the official greeter and special friend of a select group of residents.
