Bay Weekly’s Paws and Claws Pose-Off

And the Winners Are …

Best In Show: Rascal Sanders, Chesapeake Beach

In Bay Country, our pet photos are as precious to us as our baby photos — and often a lot cuter. Which is why we asked you to send us your pictures to feature in our annual Pet Tales issue.

 

We were wrong to worry you wouldn’t respond. You did, in abundance, from near and far, confirming the reach of our online edition.

We’ve learned many things from the photos of your furry, feathered and scaled friends. Bella is a favorite pet name, but not all Bellas are beautiful in the same way. Still, no one can look at your photos without saying awww.

For our best in show, meet Rascal Sanders from Chesapeake Beach. This concentrating kitty beat out dogs, lizards and birds to shine on Bay Weekly’s cover.

So, sit, stay and read. You’ll get your treat when you see the photos.
