Do you have a pet? Do you have a funny/sad/poignant/heroic story about said pet? Of course you do! And we want to hear all about it.
Send your story (no more than 500 words) and optional photo, along with your name and city of residence, to Editor [at] EastBayExpress [dot] com, or Ellen Cushing, East Bay Express, 620 3rd St., Oakland, CA 94607.
We may publish your story in our Pets issue, coming out June 6. Stories must be received by May 31.
