Picture Perfect Pets

Leland’s lovable fur-babies win our hearts

Story by Jeff Stites

It’s hard not to smile at a pet photo. Whether we capture them being critters or add little touches (hats on dogs anyone?) that make them seem more like people, we often see the best of ourselves in photos of our pets. Joy, happiness, excitement, frustration, resignation, love—these are all human emotions that science might tell us don’t occur in animals, but looking at images of our pets it’s easy to argue with that. And why not? Dogs and cats have spent the last thousands of years evolving to be our companions. Is it so hard to believe they have evolved a bit of human emotion? Look at some of these photos and try to tell me these are “just animals.” So enjoy these looks into the lives of our precious friends and companions, and appreciate the special bonds we share!
