Happy #NationalPetDay! To celebrate, we’re looking back at our favorite images of furry friends from past years’ photo contest issues. 

In the West, we love our pets as much as our people, treating them as part of the family. In honor of National Pet Day, we’d like to share some of our furry friends with our readers.
Enjoy! Don’t forget to share pictures of your loved ones at @Cowboysindiansmagazine #PetsoftheWest.
