Our winners are Loo and Bora Bora, from Ewa Beach, Hawaii. "Loo and Bora Bora love long naps on the sofa after playing chase for hours or just after a yummy meal," writes fvkool.
Tonka, Marley and Duke, two Pomeranians and a great Dane from West Fork, Arkansas. "This is Tonka, Marley and Duke," writes JACoftheDanes. Their parents adopted all three of them at once. These three amigos are happy brothers on their mountaintop home. They live indoors but get to explore daily."
Ricky and Lucy, two Tonkinese (platinum mink) from Williamsburg, Virginia. "Ricky and Lucy (brother and sister) sleeping together in one of their many napping spots throughout the house," writes Poopsie10. "Out of a litter of five, they have been inseparable since birth. In their seven years together, they are still inseparable."
Karroo, Odin and Bean, a greyhound, wolfhound and Chinese crested from Brighton, Michigan. "Our comedy team of Karroo (retired racing greyhound), Odin (a wolfhound-greyhound mix) and Bean (Chinese crested) keeps us on our toes as well as each other. They are always playing and hence always hungry. They made me enter this photo cause they are hungry!" Contributed by Laze
Kittyhead and Sharkey, a Siamese and a Jack Russell from Hollywood Hills, California. "Sharkey and Kittyhead have had a love affair since the day they met when someone dumped a box full of kittens at my front door," writes susanrstoltz.
PS: We hear that Sharkey, who has been a finalist in three photo contests, has been in poor health lately. "What's amazing is that even in her misery she is still such a happy and positive little bundle," Susan writes. "The cat (the one in the photo) spends lots of time grooming Sharkey and trying to make her feel better. It's been a lesson in compassion to watch these two."
Get well soon, Sharkey!
Copper and Eragon, tabbies from Omaha. "We fell in love with Copper at the pound. Little did we know his brother Eragon was sleeping in a tube in their cage. We ended up adopting both kittens, and they continue to be inseparable. We call them 'the boys.'" Contributed by NeEttaG
Max and Sami, who knows what breed, from Dallas. "Sometimes I think they are joined at the hip! They are brother and sister and don't seem to be having that sibling rivalry thing going on. They play together non-stop! Max, the black one, has finally grown in to those ears!" Contributed by blondie8
Brewsky and Brutus, Labrador retrivers from Naples, Florida. "Brewsky and Brutus are inseparable!!! Here they are waiting for their Daddy to get home from work. It's their daily routine at 5:00pm to stand at the window and wait for him to pull in the driveway. If you notice, Brutus (on the right) has his foot in his food bowl! We adopted them from a rescue, and they were lying together in a large pen. We just knew we had to take the two of them! They do everything together: share toys, chase lizards, shred toys and even cuddle at night. We love watching them play together and are so happy we adopted them both!" Contributed by Julie21
Zoe and Milo, tabbys from Austin, Texas. "Zoe and Milo have been inseparable since the day they landed on my porch together," writes JennParks. "They sleep, eat and play together. This picture was taken a few days after this past Christmas. Days later Zoe unexpectedly fell ill from a tumor in her belly and had to be put to sleep. I'm so thankful to have this memory of them and how they were together."
Annabelle, a bull mastiff, and a tabby from Chalfont, Pennsylvania. "This is from my 'Funny Felines' series of imagery. My name is Linda McManus, I am a photographer/artist and have been creating humorous animal images for several years. My work has been added to greeting cards and framed prints. I have created a series of note cards from these images and partnered with my local SPCA to donate proceeds of sales to their shelter. This is one my most popular, and it's easy to see why...such sweeties! Hope you enjoy!" Contributed by lindamcmanus
Sadie and Blondie, miniature horses from Ridgefield, Connecticut. "These girls are half sisters that do everything together," writes wendy222. "They are in their twenties and have been together their whole lives. They have no interest in other horses and stick very close together. Try separating them for even a few moments and they will put up a show that makes it clear: Wherever she goes, I go! Yep, they're a little bratty..."
Zachary and Caitlin, a Persian and a mix from Rock City Falls, New York. "Caitlin was a ball of fire as a kitten," writes LifeAtCobbleHillFarm. "When she would finally slow down, Zachary would collapse, and Cait would collapse right on top of him."
Gizmo and Rudy, a Burmese cat and a French bulldog from Fort Collins, Colorado. "Our vocal Burmese cat, Gizmo, and our loyal and sensitive French bulldog, Rudy, couldn't be more different," writes Katelbugs. "The cat made more noise than the dog! However, they were inseparable friends, and as seen in this photo, they could often be found lolling around the house or basking in the Colorado sunshine."
Raynor, a beagle/basset hound mix from Cincinnati, Ohio. "Pichu and Raynor are best friends -- surprisingly. Although Pichu lives in a cage, Raynor visits him and gives him kisses through the cage. When Pichu has play time on the floor, he's not afraid to go up to Raynor. He nibbles and licks her on the nose. He's not at all scared of the 45-pound dog towering above him -- he just wants to eat his lettuce! Raynor is good with that -- as long as Pichu shares." writes kitkatherine.
Tinkerbell, a mixed breed rescue from Fort Mill, South Carolina. "At the time [of this photo] our new pup had only been with us for a few days, but her new 'brother' knew it was destined to be a great relationship," writes KraftyKristena. "Both have grown considerably since then, but their friendship has remained constant and unwavering."
Calvin and Hobbes, American short-haired cats from Indianapolis. "Calvin (black) and Hobbes (orange tiger striped) are best friends," writes leighkaiser. "Here they are cat napping in what looks like mid-hug. Perhaps they are dreaming of kitty treats and well-deserved belly rubs."
P.R. Henry, a "limited edition" from Waddy, Kentucky. "Henry was found abandoned and starving in a house that was put up for auction after the owners skipped town," writes ky_rosebud. "His front paws were injured so bad that the vet said it was the worst paw injury he had ever seen. After reconstructive surgery and lots and lots of love, Henry is now healthy and huge, and I don't know what I'd ever do without him!"
