This past week saw a little more snow arrive, and then it warmed up considerably! The spate of warm wether was an ideal opportunity and find things to do outdoors — and that goes for companion animals, too!

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?

Did your dog get to get out and enjoy the weather on Wednesday? Was your cat relishing the warmth and sun?

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