Show us your pet on the go!
You’ll be in the running for one of five $100 gift certificates to PetCo when you share a photo of your pet on the go. The possibilities are endless: Kitty could be on vacation with you or Fido could be in a frenzy chasing his tail in your own backyard. If your pet is on the go, we want to see it! Post photos to usaweekend.com/onthego between March 25 and April 29. Five winners will be drawn May 1.
