Pet portraits: Your pictures of the north of Scotland’s cutest companions!

What a Skye! OK, so the view from Ben Nevis is pretty good too, but handsome two-year-old Skye from Caol, Fort William, steals the show during a climb with Iona Mackay.

Could your pet be the cutest in the region?

Put your opinion to the test with our weekly Pet Portraits gallery, where your beloved companion could be among the most adorable animals in the area.

This week’s winners are Bella the lab and Troy the boxer (below) watching traffic go by!  Thanks to Nicola Brunton for sending in the pic.


Check out our gallery below

“I spy with my little eye…” Bella the lab and Troy the boxer clearly spotted something fascinating while out in Glenrothes with Nicola Brunton.
Um, has this been sent to pets by mistake? Daffs belong in gardening… Wait! We see you, Tosca and Ficka! The chihuahua/Jack Russell pups live with Shuna Mardon in Oyne.
Each week, as we look at your pet pictures, it’s getting harder and harder to believe humans are really the ones running the planet… Annie and Shackleton definitely seem to have life figured out in Thurso! We hope Pete and Wendy Hylton had time for a snuggle with them at least.
Honey looks as sweet as her name as she soaks up the spring sun in Judy Alexander’s garden in Aberdeen.  Judy’s daughter Ruth tells us beautiful rescue dog Honey is blind, but it doesn’t seem to hold her back at all.
We know plenty of humans who don’t sit this patiently waiting for their tea! We hope Mike Fyfe from Banff rewarded brilliant Benji with a feast worthy of his immaculate behaviour
What a Skye! OK, so the view from Ben Nevis is pretty good too, but handsome two-year-old Skye from Caol, Fort William, steals the show during a climb with Iona Mackay.
OK, so it looks like the sun’s come out, but it’s really four–year–old Lab Maggie that’s lighting up Karen Stewart’s Banchory garden.
Oh dear. We’re not sure many birds will brave the bath in Judy Lambert’s Broughty Ferry garden with Rory on duty there!
Cousins Daisy the cocker spaniel and Labrador Meg compete for the most excellent pose at Aberdeen’s Foggieton Woods. We can’t pick between those fabulous faces, so hope Alyson Shinnie agrees it’s a draw!
It seems rugby–mad Welshman Gareth James has a willing teammate in Monifieth! Jamie the two-year-old border collie is certainly on the ball in Gareth and Denise’s garden.
What could be better than a walk along the beautiful beach at Donmouth  Nature Reserve? Sharing that walk with Sulley the fox red Labrador, that’s what! Cara Copland from Aberdeen has the pleasure of the precious pooch’s company.
Fair enough, Bella. If we had a toy that cute, we’d refuse to leave it behind too! Bella and mum Janette from Dunfermline were visiting Bill and Sandra Bryan in Bunchrew, Inverness.
That’s it. We quit. Sorry, but no more newspapers – Darcy is the most cuddly thing we’ve ever seen and we’re willing to hug her full–time! The Stewarts in Insch are one lucky family.
