I now pick and choose based on individual interests (or relevant holidays), but here's your chance to speak up and share your own requests. Just let me know which breeds you'd love to know more about in the comments below. If I haven't covered it in a quiz already, those pups will be placed atop my list!
Get creative and pose pets with flowery props or let them go about their business sniffing or playing with blossoms on their own. The one thing I ask is that you make sure they don't eat the pretty blooms — it could be poisonous. Then grab your camera, shoot away, and add photos of furry friends with flowers somewhere in the shot. After all, it's Spring, so take inspiration from this potted cutie and learn how to join and contribute your own pics when you read more

While chickies, ducklings, and bunnies are backyard babes synonymous with the upcoming Easter holiday, it's never a good plan to gift one of these creatures unless the home is well-prepared and willing to care for the (arguably) less-cute adult animals. After people realize that the tiny thing grows into something bigger or unmanageable, the pet is often abandoned or given to a shelter or sanctuary.Even though some get a second chance at life in a forever home, if you really, really want to give a child something like this, here's a great way to do so. Farm Sanctuary offers sponsorship packages for its farm animals — many of which are abandoned pets. When purchased in either your name or in the name of someone else, each unique sponsorship package includes a personalized adoption certificate and a beautiful color photo, which make the perfect addition to any Easter basket. No cleanup required!
