Whether they be furry, scaly or slithery; we love our pets.
In celebration of national pet day we called The Yass Tribune, The Braidwood Times, The Goulburn Post, The Queanbeyan Age, The Southern Highlands News and The Crookwell Gazette called out to our readers to share their pictures.
We were inundated with pictures on our Facebook pages.
Here is a mega gallery of pets from around the wider region.
