National Love Your Pet Day is February 20 and to celebrate we asked you to tell us about your pets. We were overwhelmed with responses. We know you all love your pets, but we were so excited to see exactly how much!

Here are a few of our favorite submissions. Happy National Love Your Pet Day! Give your favorite furry friend a little extra love today — and every day!

"I love my little fur ball! I have a blonde, spunky Yorkipoo named Tink. She's about 6 or 7 years old now, but you couldn't tell. She's a little ball of energy that loves to lick people! She brings joy to my life every single day. (She woke up from a nap in this photo. Too cute!)" — Amber Knight 

"What is there not to love?! He is the best boy in the world! Unconditional love!" — Jan Bjorklund Conrady-Fountain

"Lucy [is] 2 years [old]. She is in her favorite evening spot, on my lap, while I am watching TV. Her brother, Desi, chooses to sleep in the rocking chair. His loss." — Carol Tarbay Sabetti

"I love all my kitties, but Dewey is a special kind of nut. He thoroughly and frequently tests the limits of the good nature and sense of humor of his housemates. He's lucky we're strong on those traits." — Debra Chatham

"This is Nakita, and she is a 4-month-old Alaskan Malamute. She is the most loving, sweet dog with a fiery personality that I have ever been honored to rescue." — Robert Cramer

"This is my senior furbaby, Olive. Here she is just sitting in a flower pot full of dirt, getting ready for the sunset. She greets me every time I come home and is always happy to see me and ready to talk and tell [me] about her day. When I pet her, I can see the love in her eyes. She is a funny girl and makes me smile all the time. I love her and our home wouldn't be complete without her." — Renee Sineath

"I love that he's a happy goofball who makes me smile every day." — Autumn Stepanski

"Spooky & Spunky! The love and companionship they bring to our home." — Tammy Donohue

"My bunny, Luffy, is very stoic and fancy, but every now and then, he will have these moments where he just turns into a big baby who needs the pets and cuddles." — Rhianna Lynch

"My handsome Hamilton loves to snuggle and always makes me laugh!" — Ariel Green

"Trooper is 10 months old today. He is so smart, loving and just plain fun. He loves being silly." — Cindy Dean

"This fella right here [is] precious and he [is] the most lovable thing." — Margarita Rojas 

"[These] kitties are so lovable and sweet! All they want to do is cuddle and play. They make me so happy!" — Christine Hunter

"My lifetime companions. Both were rescue dogs. Mr. Haydut (Shep/lab mix) was rescued from a place giving him away for free. He was only seven weeks old then and in bad health. Look at his beauty now, at six years old! Mr. Prince (Yorkie mix) was a rescue from a co-worker who, after five years of having him, decided they didn't want him anymore, and wanted a puppy instead. He doesn't have to worry about being homeless now, though! Look at his beautiful smile at seven years old! I love my best friends!!!!" — Sheila Cane Gurbek

"This is the love of my life. She's been by my side for 14 years. I love her rambunctious attitude toward life in her old age. Nothing slows her down! If there's a soul mate in the world for me, it's her." — Brandee Vezer

"This is Sunny. I love that she is a snuggle bunny!" — Barbara Makransky

"I have two cats who make our house a home, but it is ridiculous how much I love this dog. He is my pet, my child and my best friend all rolled into one. He loves romaine lettuce and pulls damp towels off of my head to roll in. He is a wonderful little weirdo. It took me a long time to convince my husband to get a dog, but now we want to clone him." — Chelsea Leahy

"I love [my] little seven pound rescue. Natasha always likes the biggest toy!" — Kathy Ianniello Caruso
