Always sniffing out a fun topic to write about, our newsroom staff is hot on the trail of this year's Pets & Their People special publication.
In previous editions, we told you about our neighbors with unusual pets — bearded dragons, 100-pound tortoises, and an Australian labradoodle named Reagan, who has appeared in People magazine and boasts a staggering 211,000 followers on Instagram.
And since our critters are so much a part of who we are, Pets & Their People also features a pet look-alike photo contest. We're continuing that tradition again this year with prizes donated by local businesses.
But we can't do this without the help of our faithful readers.
Here's your chance to tell us the stories about your lovable pets. Did one of them save your life? Does your pet have an usual trick? We want to hear about it.
Send us the story and photo of your extraordinary animal via email. And please consider entering your photo in the pet look-alike contest. You have nothing to lose!
