Living North readers have proven once again what we already know --

we love our pets! We are thrilled to publish these priceless shots of our

readers and their pets. While difficult to choose, and with much debate,

we did select this year's best of the best, a grand prize winner:

Delaney - a 9-month-old Golden Retriever with her "Papa," sent in by

Carrie Landman of Duluth. We loved the way this photo captured the

bond between human and canine in a unique and understated

fashion. They have won a family membership to the zoo, courtesy of

the Lake Superior Zoo!
