FROM doting dogs and cuddly cats to bonny bunnies and huggable hamsters, pets are an enormous part of our lives.

Whether it's a four-legged friend, brightly-coloured bird or fascinating fish, they become part of the family. A cherished part of our day to day life.

To celebrate the role pets play, we'd love to see your pictures and put them firmly in the spotlight - where they belong.

Send us your photos and details here and we'll print as many as we can in the paper and online.
