***Mini-Challenge 521*** Pets

It has been done before but it is time for another.
Pets are incredibly important components of many people‚Äôs lives and they invariably can provide great photographic opportunities. So I want to see your best pet photographs. 
And this isn't just about dogs, when I was a kid I had a pet stag beetle and although we never really bonded I still have a soft spot for him/her/it.  And don't get me started on Wilma (I think) the worm.   Strange childhood I had.   

The usual stuff.......note the LIMIT on the number of exhibits

The Mini-Challenge is now open and closes at 17.00 GMT on Thursday 18th October 2018.  Results will be published the following day.

1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or a MAXIMUM OF THREE Exhibits.
2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.
3. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced.
4. Please state in the header of your post, or in the comments bar below each image, whether they are "Entry" or "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.
5. It's best to post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post. This makes collating the entries and exhibits much easier, but images sometimes need to be posted in comments when sub-threads develop, to keep the sense of the conversation going, so I will hunt right through the posts looking for valid images.
6. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread, and I may select some other submissions, entries or exhibits, for Honourable Mentions.
Grand Prize: The First Place winner becomes the host of the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the challenge setter with a forum post or PM. If that individual doesn't respond in 3 days, or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.
And as examples a couple of mine

Growing old is inevitable; growing up, however, is optional.
And I have opted out.
