Pet Photo Friday: Readers share a glimpse into their lives with pets

By Lorrie Shaw

Our readers frequently interact here on the pets section: whether it's the interesting insight and exchange of ideas or, as we see at the end of each week, cute pet photos!

It's always fun to see what our readers lives are like with their own pets and other animals, and one thing is for certain — people in our community have interesting stories to tell.

One reader shares a poignant story about why their dog — a pit bull — has for many years been an important part of their life.

Photo submissions for future slideshows are always being accepted, and participating in our weekly photo blog is easy! Simply email a photo of your pet, just being him or herself, 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 1200 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.
