In honor of National Dog Day, we’re launching Pet of the Week, a weekly column featuring pets (and their owners) around Silver Spring and Takoma Park.

We want to feature your pet photos, and we’ve made it easy to send them to us. Head over to our Submission Form, fill out the fields, and upload your photos. They will go into our Editorial Queue, and we will publish them in the order that they are received.

We will publish a new Pet of the Week on Friday afternoons.
