The Pet Connection, a bi-annual themed edition, will publish Feb. 26.
We invite you to send us stories about your pets, photos of you and/or your family with your cats, dogs, hamsters, snakes, lizards, frogs, rabbits, or whatever other creatures share your home or yard with you.
Tell us the story of a special bond between a child and a dog, the story of how you came to adopt your pet, or examples of amazing feats of your creatures. Can your dog catch a Frisbee 10 feet in the air, or devour an entire pizza when you turn your back for less than a minute?
Do you volunteer at an animal shelter or therapeutic riding center or take your pet to visit people in a nursing home? Tell us about your experience.
Have you helped to train an assistance dog? Do you or someone in your family depend on an assistance dog?
Or take this opportunity to memorialize a beloved pet you have lost.
Send photos and identify everyone in the photo including the pets and tell us what is happening in the photo, and include your address (we will only print the town name).
Submissions should arrive by Feb. 19.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit photos and stories directly on our website at www.connectionnewspapers.com/contact/letter
