Just because I can, and just because I'm thinking of my dog a lot due to his upcoming knee surgery , let's have a thread of pet photos. Post a photo and write a note about why it (or the pet in it) means something special to you. If you are too lazy to write a few sentences, you are a chump who will be banished to the land of the "no words" forum. This is a "words" thread. After all, what pet owner doesn't like to talk about their pet? To those who don't like pet photos or animals, tough luck. One of the few joys of having a job like running photo.net is that you get to start whatever thread you want. Yes, I'm just being a sourpuss. There are plenty of good things about my job.
