We asked our readers to submit photo of their cute pets and they delivered. We picked our favorites – including dogs, cats and turtles – for this fun summer pictorial.

 

 

 

 

Ashley Kohler’s cat, Atticus, is truly a rock star kitty. No autographs please, but treats are always welcome.

 

 

 

 

Miss Lilly, a Labradore mix, is awfully fond of walks and stuffed toys. Her human is Dara Merlin, who rescued the cutie from Lab Friends of the South.

 

 

 

 

Chloe is a Maltese who loves to play with her giraffe and other squeaky toys and enjoys spending time in the mountains with her owner Jennifer Groom.

 

 

 

 

Chloe is a 4-pound Chihuahua owned by Kara Francisco. She loves burrowing under soft blankets, being petted and car rides.

 

 

 

 

Ditto the Wonderdog was born in France and enjoys a jet-set lifstyle. Settled in Midtown with Jody Dyer, she does 20 tricks including smiling on request. Ooh la la!

 

 

 

 

Shoppers at Tall Tale Books in Toco Hills might remember Dot as the official store greeter. Owner Doug Quarterman says she’s since retired to devote more time to eating and sleeping.

 

 

 

 

Kim Bohstedt, owner of the Poochsicles & Bark Bites Truck, snapped this pic of Ella, who’s a little bit country and rock ‘n roll.

 

 

 

Frankie is a red-eared slider turtle, but he’s not shy! He likes to be walked, to play and eat, according to owner Donna Wise.

 

 

 

 

Anne Glenn’s dog Georgia might be 11, but she still acts like a pup. She loves to run in the park, play with her ball, eat ice cream and car rides.

 

 

 

 

Alexis Wilson’s cat Izzie is a supermodel kitty and loves to pose for the camera. Watch your back, Tyra Banks, because Izzie knows how to strut the catwalk.

 

 

 

 

Nassau is a 6-year-old Australian Cattle Dog adopted by Sylvia Small from the Atlanta Humane Society. Weather permitting, she loves to chase and eat snowflakes.

 

 

 

 

Penny Louise, owned by Brian Hake, is a Puggle (Beagle/Pug mix) who thrives on snuggle time and is obsessed with frozen carrots.

Intowner Denise sent in this photo of Sebastian, who likes to dig to China, watch TV and chase the shadows and light.

 

 

 

 

Lauren Golden’s pooch is named Mr. Snuffleuphagus, but everyone calls him Snuffy. The fearless hairball loves to play fetch and run in circles.

 

 

 

 

Amanda Smith’s adorable pug mix, Spitzi, is only seven months old, but enjoys going to the dog park, paying with other dogs and cuddling on the couch.
