Animal magic: Your pets

At the beginning of April we asked you to share photos of your precious pets to celebrate National Pet Month. You didn’t disappoint! In fact, we were so overwhelmed, we lost a good part of the day scrolling through all your lovely pet pics.

While we wanted to display all of your fabulous photos here, we just didn’t have the time, so instead we’ve picked a few of our favourites. Like Andrea, it’s clear that you’re mostly a bunch of dog lovers, however, we were pleased to see our feline friends and other not-so-furry friends also represented! Scroll down and see if you’re fur (or feather) baby made it… And keep on loving those pets, we know how special they are to you all.

This is Bailey, our 11 month Shih Tzu. I got him for a companion for my son who has ASD & ADHD. He’s had such an impact on both our lives and we love him to bits! My son struggles socially, has poor communication skills and anxiety but Bailey has made such an impact on his life helping him cope immensely with all of this! - Veronica
