PETS: Readers send in photos of their animals


Readers have submitted hundreds of entries to View’s pets section. Because we only can feature a few photos each week in the newspaper, we decided to expand the sharing online. We hope you enjoy these extra faces, and remind you to check back each Tuesday for more photos of your best friends.

“This is my Yorkie, Heidi, and my rescue Kitty, Molly,” wrote Shirlee Yunker of Las Vegas. “Not exactly the lion and the lamb, but certainly the picture of peace.”

“My husband and I adopted Rocky the brown cat from the Lied animal shelter, and Snowflake found us,” wrote Patricia Gagliano of Las Vegas. “(Snowflake) would sleep in the backyard. We put her in the garage away from the cold weather, and finally we decided that Rocky needed a friend. So we took her to the vet and got her shots. She had no microchip, so we decided to keep her, and now they’re the perfect couple.”

“These are our three children, (from left, KiKi, TiTi and ChiChi), three different breeds of Chihuahuas,” wrote Mark Pearson of Las Vegas. “Tracy and I spoil them because they give us unconditional love. I therefore believe that if a person cannot love an animal, then they cannot love another person.”
