Pets, like people, have distinct personalities — favorite foods, activities and routines make that animal unique and irreplaceable.

Here in the Grand Valley, folks love their animals, from horses to felines and dogs of all breeds.

Here are a variety of snapshot submissions from around Mesa County.


The Free Press runs photo announcements (marriages, birthdays, births, etc.) and images showing fun of all kinds (revelry, events, awards, beautiful landscapes, and more).
