Pets are family too!! This month’s Special Edition celebrates our furry, scaly, and slimy family members.  We love the submissions for this month’s cuddly and loving theme, PETS, and believe they will inspire you to go out and capture your four legged friends.  Every month we send out an “open call” to all of the the photographers and momtogs and hobbiests in our community and ask them to share some of their photos of our monthly theme.  We got a great variety of all types of pets this month from all over the world; it was difficult to choose our very favorites!! Comment below on which pet is your fave!
