YOUR pet pictures are a great way of lifting spirits – and he’s another great selection of our furry, feathered and hairy friends.

South Worcestershire certainly seems to be dog country, judging by the number of canine pictures we're receiving, although cat-lovers are also sending in plenty of their feline friends.

You can share your pictures of your family favourite here and raise a smile with everyone.

Thanks to everyone who’s sent them in so far.

There have been surprisingly few rabbits, hamsters or guinea pigs – perhaps they won't sit still long enough to have their picture taken! And birds also seem to be less popular with readers, with feathers few and far between.

So now that the summer holidays are here, why not see if you can take a picture of your pet showing that school’s out? Send your pictures here and we'll feature them in print and online.
