Pets are big part of many of our families; they are loyal companions, comedians, protectors, and a friendly ear when you need someone to talk to. With that in mind the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) created National Pet Week which is observed the first full week in May. This week is dedicated to our more than 200 million pets that help make our lives a little more enjoyable and to encourage responsible pet care each and every day.
Below are some of the pics of your best friends. We loved all the pics that were sent in so it made it tough to only choose a few! Thank you for sharing!
This is Denver, a 1.5 year old mastiff. Denver enjoys taking All American Co-Founder BJ Nickol on walks and playing with her sister Charlotte
Yenko a 9 year old Australian Shepherd, likes naps and playing with his kitty cat siblings!
Best friends Meeow-gi and Little Bit, yes the cat is bigger than the dog :)
Here is Aries, he is 5-6 years old. Looks like he is pretty comfortable :)
Obi is a 14 year old black lab!
Here is Maggie, who also has a brother Thor (not pictured). They were both rescued from the side of the road after they had been dumped. As you can tell from the picture and from what the owner says "they are all tongue, they are best friends and I am lucky they found me."
Kaiser a 3 year old German Shepherd loves snow and his frisbee... the only thing that can slow him down is the vacuum cleaner!
Soren, Mats and Hannah: Soren and Hannah are Norwegian Elkhounds and Mats is a Yellow Labrador. Thank you for sharing Ann!
