Golden retriever Maddie Wells, 9, depends on her “baba” when there are storms. Or when she’s just worried about something. 
BETTY WELLS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Golden retriever Maddie Wells, 9, depends on her “baba” when there are storms. Or when she’s just worried about something. BETTY WELLS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Our hands-down favorite project every summer at Florida Weekly is the Pet Lovers special edition that features — what else? — pictures from you, our readers, of the furry, slithery, slobbery, whiskered, feathered, hoofed, amphibious or otherwise non-human companions that help make your lives complete.

Grab your smartphone or camera and click away. Then email your favorite shot (one entry per person, please) to pets@floridaweekly.com. Be sure to tell us your full name and phone number, the name of your pet(s) and anything else you think we might want to know about your animal friend(s).

Our pet-friendly staff will review the pictures we receive and choose our favorite few dozen for publication in our July 26 edition.

We’ll also pick three top pets whose owners will receive gift certificates ($250 for first place, $100 each for second and third) to a pet supply store.

Deadline for email submissions of high-resolution jpgs (300 dpi) is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 16. But please don’t wait; we want to start admiring, laughing at and loving your pets as much as you do. ¦
