We will sit, beg and roll over for your animal tales

Tidings seeks stories for annual edition of Perspective


From the beginning of time, animals have played a key role in our lives. We have relied on them for food, clothing, service, protection and companionship.

And there is no doubt we love the animals in our lives. According to American Pet Products Association, Americans spent $55.53 billion on their pets in 2013 alone.

From the bizarre (pet sloths, anyone?) to the typical dogs and cats, pets often entertain us with their antics and win us over with their unwavering devotion. We want to hear your stories about the animals in your lives for our next edition of Perspective, our annual souvenir edition of the West Linn Tidings. The theme this year is “The Animals in Our Lives.”

Does your favorite store have a shop cat or dog? Does your neighbor raise unique animals? Does your pet have the craziest antics? Do you benefit from a service animal? Perhaps you work with animals, train animals or compete with animals? Do you have a story about an encounter with an animal and lived to tell the tale?

Share your story ideas with Tidings Editor Lori Hall at lhall@westlinntidings.com or call 503-636-1281, ext. 103.
