Walking, stretching, stealing socks, playing fetch, daytime napping, farting and ignoring all social distancing rules - this is the tough life of a pet in lockdown.
For as long as the lockdown lasts our sports journalist, Joe Porter has committed to posting a photo a day of his beautiful dogs on their recent adventures.
We loved how these pictures brightened up our timeline, and asked for pictures of how your pets were enjoying more time with you.
Jennie Gutry sent in this photo of Max, who is now acting as Bureau Chief at Foxton RNZ, and keeping an eye on reporter in lockdown Katie Scotcher.
Josie Campbell has a fairly territorial house bunny called Rabs Guy who is slowly adjusting to her being around all the time.
"The most upsetting thing for him is that I keep getting in his space, and he lets me know about it - often by sitting under my chair and farting. I was doing a streaming yoga class the other day and he was so perturbed about me being down on the carpet that he climbed on my back while I was doing cobra pose, stood on his hind legs and leant on me when I was doing warrior two, and repeatedly sat between me and the screen."
Josie's guinea pigs Wally and Stan don't have a clue that anything's different. Today they got fanmail through the post from their seven year bestie Eva and the likenesses are outstanding.
Vinnie Wylie's kitten Kobe is finding lockdown exhausting.
Jane Gro says their says kittens are learning what it's like to snooze in front of the fire for the first time in their little lives.
And Lachie is getting in on some of that nap action.

Koro Vaka'utas' cat Fluff has been doing some cat-yoga stretches.
As has Sirius. Perhaps they were streaming the same free yoga class on Instagram.
Francesca shared this image of Iris and Theo. She says Theo is still a naughty kitten and really wants to be friends with Iris, who only tolerates him at the moment. It appears there is a breakthrough in their relationship, as it is rare for them to be napping so close together.
Chloe Smith sent in this picture of Coco the Sheep, who has been enjoying the family's company by getting glammed up for a photo shoot and getting heaps of treats.
Speaking of fashion shoots, Ada has her formal Friday outfit sorted.
Meanwhile, this kitty is getting involved in the teddy bear hunt fun.

Brooklyn the Dog is a huge American baseball fan, and pretty bummed about having no baseball to watch.
There's a game of hide and seek being played here.
Dogs loving it....whereas wee George perhaps not so much pic.twitter.com/y3gBQhA89F— Stay in your bubble & be kind (@elsamay55) March 30, 2020

And this doggo has decided to take a wee rest with tennis ball still in mouth.
This fluff-ball has started collecting socks.

Two metres apart rule? It's OK, these doggos are staying inside of their bubble.
What’s better than one dog? pic.twitter.com/j7vUL1UynV— jo (@jofromgreylynn) March 30, 2020
What's better than two dogs? pic.twitter.com/6aG0wXwbWn— Gir (@edufk) March 30, 2020
And these pets are just busy looking cute.
Did someone call? Iggy is willing to answer it. pic.twitter.com/I5pprL0RQS— Sonia Stay at Home (@eloquentsonia) March 30, 2020
