It’s the end of the year, and we want to celebrate with our favorite pet photos you, our readers and fans, have shared with us. That’s what this site and our sister brands (Simple Solution, Vet’s Best, OUT! Pet Care and Bags on Board) are all about—sharing the joy of pet parenting.

So with that said, here are some of our favorite pet photos of the year that you shared with us in 2016:

Every year in March, the LTPL team hits sunny Florida to check out the new pet products at Global Pet Expo. We held a Twitter Party during the show to preview new products introduced at GPE. There were some great conversations, but what was most memorable about this Twitter Party were the amazing pet photos you all shared of your own pets. We always love seeing your four-legged family members!

Also every year we get really excited for National Pet Day! This year we decided to hold a photo contest—our first ever for LTPL! It was so fun to see everyone’s photos, but only one person could win, and that was Instagram user @tamaramusquiz, who submitted this darling photo of her Pomeranian:


And even though there could only be one winner, we had some other great entries:

Later in the year, for SuperZoo (another major pet products show held in August in Las Vegas), we decided to host another Twitter Party, given the response we got from the one earlier in the year at Global Pet Expo. We talked about adopting new puppies and, incredibly, we received even more photos than in March! Here are some of our favorites we received:

But it wasn’t just around these special events that you submitted; many readers shared photos of their pets throughout the year. These are just a few of the photos that you—our amazing readers and fans—sent in:


We want to thank each and every one of you who made 2016 so great for us at Live the Pet Life. We’ve had a lot of fun and we’re aiming to start 2017 with even better, more fun and more useful articles to bring the joy of pet parenting into your lives.

If there’s anything specific that you would like to read in 2017, let us know in the comments!
