All pet photos welcome for this week's Pet Photo Friday slideshow

By Lorrie Shaw


Photos of your chickens are welcome, too.

That familiar crispness is in the air, as is the faint smell of fallen leaves. After the blustery weather over the weekend, it's good to get outside and blow off some steam —and that goes for companion animals, too!

With these final glimpses of available daylight before Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, it's certainly a reason to get out and enjoy what nature has to offer while we can.

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 enjoying a little time at the dog park. Do you keep chickens? Surely they are relishing this last bit of outdoor warmth.

Any pet or animal in the family is welcome in the slideshow that 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.
