From pint sized pooches to cuddly companions, our hunt for the picture perfect dog continues to inspire.
Entries are continuing to flood in for our hunt for a canine worthy of fronting St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Paws in the Park event.
We are looking for a star to grace the posters, banners, programmes and marketing materials for the dog day on May 22.
Here are a flavour of the entries and there is still time to put your dog forward.
Charlotte Ruddock, events administrator at the hospice, said: ”The response is fabulous. We are going to have such a hard job judging all these gorgeous dogs.
“Paws in the Park is already proving to be such a lovely way to bring people and their furry friends together.
“We can’t wait to join the Bury Free Press and Swayne and Partners in picking a winner.”
The winning dog will not only appear on all marketing materials for Paws in the Park, but its owner will win a 10in by 8in professional portrait of their dog and a family ticket (two adults and two children) for the event.
To enter, fill in the entry form in this week’s Bury Free Press and send us a photograph of your dog.
Alternatively, email at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Paws in the Park competition’ in the subject line.
Emails should include your name, address, post code, tel and mobile numbers, name of dog and breed of dog.
The closing date is 9am on Monday, February 29 and the winner will be announced in the Bury Free Press on Friday, March 11.
Paws in the Park, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care and in partnership with Swayne and Partners, is on Sunday, May 22 on Hardwick Heath.
It will feature various dog-themed activities including a dog show and the chance to compete in a range of different classes, have-a-go agility areas and displays, chill-out area, dog portraits and trade stands.
