The rules are simple- send us photos of your mature dogs and cats (no puppies or kittens please!). They do not need to be YAH alumni all mature dogs and cats welcome! We'll pick the best of the bunch and will put them in our 2011 calendar. The prize is our undying gratitude and your pet in the calendar for all to see!
Some hints for winning photos:
