It's often said that "dogs are a man's best friend," and we can all agree that truer words have never been spoken. If you've had the pleasure of gaining such a companion, then you know exactly what this means. Dogs are the most loyal, loving friends you'll ever have, from simple walks and much-needed cuddles to being present for significant milestones. In celebration of Midlothian Lifestyle and Short Pump City Lifestyle's Kids and Pets issue, staff, partners, and readers have submitted photos of their dogs for a chance to show off their beloved furry friends.
Here's a special "thank you" to everyone who contributed photos, especially Midlothian Lifestyle and Short Pump City Lifestyle partners: Dog Training Elite Richmond, Ashton Creek, Greer Jones, ameriCARE of Richmond, RVA Design Group, InnoVitamin Solutions, Paragon Construction, Richmond Surgical Arts, and DRIPBaR Richmond. And, of course, a heartfelt "thank you" to all the dogs that fill the following pages. Your camaraderie, devotion, and adoration are immeasurable, and we are forever grateful to you for showing us the genuine meaning of friendship.
