The images that our readers send in each week for Pet Photo Friday are always fun to see, and we know that this week will be no exception.

We're entering a very fun time of year, crisp weather, pumpkins, festive Halloween decorations — it can all bring out a really fun side of our four-legged friends.

Does your dog like to dress up for Halloween? Did you snap a photo of your cat "hunting" in a pile of leaves?

Why not submit a favorite photo of your pet? This week, we'll be featuring autumn and Halloween-themed photos for Pet Photo Friday.

We're inviting you to email a photo of your companion animal to, any time during the week to participate in this fun feature.

Doing so 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 600 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.
