YOUR BEST FRIENDS: Readers share pictures of their pets, Oct. 2



Patricia Buchanan and Mandel Martinez shared this photo of  Cody, a Chihuahuah/Papillion mix who was adopted at the Kingman Animal Shelter when he was 1. "He is now 3. He is the friendliest dog and gives a kiss to all who meet him, whether they want it or not. Cody has filled a large void in our hearts since the premature death of our other little dog, Pippy."


Bruce and Stacy Eubank of Las Vegas shared this photo of their English bulldog, Ed. “We have had him for five years. He is a gentle soul. He loves to sit in his pool on hot summer days thinking ‘Ed’ thoughts,” they wrote.


Ruth Sibert of North Las Vegas shared this photo of Lulu, who turned 17 on April 29 and still plays soccer with a basketball. “She’s a wonderful dog. I have had her since she was a puppy,” she wrote.
