Show your favorite animal friend some serious love on Feb. 20, which happens to be Love Your Pet Day. Pets don't need sparkling gems or dinner at a fancy restaurant to know they are loved and appreciated. A nice good scratch behind the ear, an extralong snuggle session, a longer walk than usual, or a special treat is all that's required to let your animal pal know that she's the best pet around. Click through for a sweet collection of loving pet pictures and a few tips on how to show your affection any day of the week.
