Once again this year, I’d like to put together a post for Christmas day celebrating the human-animal bond in pictures. If you would like to submit a photo for inclusion, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
- Photo should feature at least one pet and one human in keeping with the human-animal bond theme. It need not be an entire human, e.g. just a hand patting a pet is ok.
- Please include a brief caption identifying the pets, people, and what area you are from. Your caption can be specific (e.g. “Shirley and shelter pet Fluffy in South Carolina”) or vague (“Neighborhood kids with our Pitbull in New England”). If you prefer to remain anonymous, please clearly indicate that.
- Photo should have no copyright issues – that is, the photo should be taken by you, a family member or someone who isn’t expecting payment for the use of the photo.
- Please e-mail photos to me no later than December 21, 2014.
To get an idea of the kinds of pics people have submitted in previous years, take a look at
