Wind down your week with Friday Pet Photos

By Lorrie Shaw


This week, we were so glad once again see the enthusiasm that our readers have for sharing their photos of their beloved pets — and their ability to capture the essence of each of them.

You'll get the chance to see some furry members that belong to our readers.

Next Friday we're going to offer up something that's a little different. Of course, we'll feature our Friday Pet Photos slideshow — but in this case, the photos will be taken by kids!

Children have a unique vantage point when it come to pets, and they're often skillful behind the lens. In preparation for next weeks' series, we invite you to e-mail your photo of your pet, taken by your child to This fun installation will be published on May 6.

We will put the week's photos into a slideshow, which we will publish and promote here in the Pets section.

As always, don't forget to include the animal's name, age and city or township of residence in your e-mail. And because it's our special kids' series, don't forget your child's name. Photos should be in .jpg format, and 600 pixels wide.
