We expected the cats and dogs, and indeed, they popped up often. We weren’t even surprised by the occasional horse or bird dressed out in holiday attire.
But when we asked readers last year to send us images of festive holiday pets, the hedgehog in the Santa hat and the bearded dragon dressed up as an elf really impressed us.
With more than 150 entries, we decided our readers deserved to have fun again. So we’re challenging you to send more photos of your furry, scaly or feathered friends.
We’re looking for pet-themed holiday photos or cards. Obviously, any animal can be the subject of the picture. Who knows, this year we may see French hen, turtle dove or a partridge in a pear tree.
If we’ve already published your pet, online or in print, please don’t re-submit the same photo. But hey, if Mittens has a new pose, she’s still in the running.
Submit to: http://mingle.kansascity.com/photos/2016/holiday-pet-photos-2016/ Click on the “Share your shots,” and upload your favorite holiday pet photo by 4 p.m. today.
Online submissions only, please. Photos must be jpeg files you have taken. Prints can be scanned and submitted electronically. Please do not retouch images, though cropping is fine.
A caption must be included that lists the photographer or owner’s name, contact information (phone and email, not for publication), name of the pet, and a description of the scene.
We’ll publish these in a slideshow on KansasCity.com and in the 913 and 816 North Dec. 21 edition.
