Reader photo of the day: Dogs mimic their napping owner
Don't fret, dog-loving readers. Although it may appear that something terrible has befallen these dogs and their human counterpart, in reality nothing could be further from the truth, as submitter Barney explains.
"On the weekend we take our dogs for a run," Barney says. "My husband decided to take a quick nap in the field and 2 of the dogs flopped onto their backs too." Now, we've heard of dogs mimicking their human companions, but we've never seen an example of it quite like this!
Think your animal photo should be our reader photo of the day? We'd love to see it, and showing us is easy! Just head to the Pets & Animals category of Your Scene, The Times' photo-sharing site, and select the appropriate album (for instance, we snagged Barney's photo from the Just Five More Minutes album). Once you've chosen your album, click the "submit" link at the top of the page, pick your photo (.jpg format) and include a caption that tells us a little about the animal or animals you've photographed. It's as simple as that!
