Max
"Adopted at the ripe old age of two, Max went from neglected street cat to cuddly lap cat in a heartbeat. This photo is just one of many capturing Max's endless efforts to gain and keep our attention. He is a ham." — Submitted by Whitney Heinrich

Macks
"Macks is a three-year-old lab mix with a ton of energy. We got Macks from Paws Animal Shelter when he was one year old—he was our 80 pound baby! Life revolved around him, and then we found out we were pregnant. We wondered how Macks would handle losing 'baby' status, and while he doesn't get quite as much ball time, he's loving his new little sister—and she's enamored with him!" — Submitted by Juliet Swedlund

Pixel
"Still a puppy in this photo, Pixel made this photo shoot of my daughter, Jade, a lot harder than we had hoped. It's hard enough to get a 6-year-old to pose endlessly, but a new puppy? Even harder." — Submitted by Brandee Borror

Luxe
"When Luxe comes home from boarding at Seattle's Barking Lounge, she's completely pooped. And she knows that the first day back from a trip is the one time that her 'guilty for leaving' mama will allow her on the couch. She also knows that no paws are allowed on the couch, so this is her compromise." — Submitted by Gina Davito

Spike
"We adopted Spike from Bulldog Haven NW and he promptly took over the starring role of 'love of our lives.' He also stole my sister's heart, which is why he's wearing a ribbon on his head. For her birthday she asked for Spike with a bow on top. This was the best we could do!" — Submitted by Jess Estrada

Garcia
"This is our bearded collie Garcia. We rescued him in Ohio just a day before his time was up in a rural county pound. He was nearly bald and not very personable at the time, but he has grown into the most funny, beautiful boy you could imagine. He was dressed up here for a fundraising event. Whenever he puts on a new outfit, his expressions are priceless. (He tends to be rather full of himself.)" — Submitted by Janine Dainis

"Our miniature schnauzer Carly hates it when we leave her. We didn't realize how much she'd miss us until I turned around while packing my suitcase for a trip to find her curled up inside." — Submitted by Teresa Moore
