Pet Photo Friday: festive pets celebrating the season!

By Lorrie Shaw

This week, we were thrilled to put together this series. Our readers have a penchant for sharing their photos of their beloved pets — and their ability to capture the essence of each of them is evident.

This was an interesting one, as it's the last Friday before Halloween! The photos reflect an even more whimsical take on the holiday, including a cute Japanese Chin/Cavalier mix who is enjoying his first autumn, a trio of dogs who are sporting their Angry Birds costumes and, of course, other festive critters.

It's a fun way to end your week!

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.
