Want to submit your pet photo? Please mail your photo. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any photos by e-mail because of the huge volume of reader e-mail that comes in each day. The photo should show your pet(s) doing something funny or unusual. If you want the photo returned, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Please indicate on the back of the photo your pet’s name, age, breed, etc., and include your address. These photos and stories appear in our special Saturday pet newspaper column that runs in papers throughout the country. Since there are only 52 Saturdays in a year, sadly, we have room for only 52 photos per year. We try to pick photos that show something amusing or out of the ordinary. We hope to include all pets—even snakes, fish, spiders, etc. Send your pet photo to Heloise-Pets, P. O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 78279-5000.
