Love in Lansing honors the animals we care about

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than many people.” – James Herriot, “All Creatures Great and Small”, 1972.

Animal stories brighten our day, tug at our hearts and give us pause to think about humanity. This year, our Love in Lansing theme honors the animals in our lives: we look for stories about the animals or pets that are closest and dearest to you.

For example: You may have that dog whose unconditional love for family showed dedication or heroic deeds that brought tears to your eyes. Maybe you have a cat that will snuggle up in your lap and provide that soothing purr that makes a horrible day that little bit better. Or maybe you and your significant other got together because an animal had an intuition that you two should be together.

WHO: You and your pet(s)

What: Write a maximum of 100 words and attach a photo

When: Submit your entry by noon on Monday, February 7th.
