Photos of a goat on a paddleboard with its ultra-athlete owner got a lot of attention after a story was published online in Black Press sister newspaper the Vernon Morning Star this week.

The images and story of Vernon super-athlete, Shanda Hill, on a paddleboard with one of her pet goats was then featured on the Chilliwack Progress website on Friday.

We published the story online and asked our Facebook readers to share photos of their own pets enjoying some local recreation.

People sent us photos of their dogs on boats, a cat hiking, a dog in a helicopter, animals camping and more.

Here are some of those photos. For more, check out the Facebook post.
