Meet some of the animals in the North East's Pets' Corner - thanks to everyone who shared a photo!

Pets' Corner: Meet some of the North East's beloved animal companions as readers share their pet pictures

Looking for something to bring a smile to your day? We’ve got the answer with our Pets’ Corner picture round-up.

You hardly need an excuse to post a cute picture of your pet on social media – so to beat those January blues, we called on the readers to flood our pages with adorable images of their animals.

And the results really did bring some sunshine to our day.

Hundreds of readers took the opportunity to introduce us to their beloved best friends, from cats and dogs to a chicken, horses and a tortoise!

Don’t worry if you can’t see your picture featured here. We received so many photographs we just couldn’t fit them all in! We’ll put together another Pets’ Corner round-up to share soon.
