Peter Donahue wins The Islander’s Top Notch Pet Photo Contest with this image of his golden retriever, Finley, and his son’s buddy, Wilson. Donahue, of Arlington Heights, Illinois, took the photo with his iPhone 8 in April, shortly before he made his annual visit to Anna Maria Island. And the title of the photo? He called it "Puppy love."
Jonathan B. Crane of Anna Maria earned an honorable mention in the pet photo contest with this image of his pup, taken at home in July. Crane titled the photo, “Falling Out of Bed.”
