Calling all dog owners: does your canine have what it takes to be the poster pooch for a new dog-themed event coming to Bury St Edmunds in May?

Paws in the Park, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, will take place at Hardwick Heath on May 22, featuring a host of activities and attractions perfect for dogs and their owners.

Now, we are launching a competition to find a picture perfect dog to star on all the posters, banners, programmes and marketing materials for the dog day.

So, if you think your pooch has the prettiest eyes, floppiest ears, fuzziest beard or widest grin, we would like to see it.

Simply send us a picture of your dog and fill in the entry form below to give your pet the chance to be seen across the region to advertise Paws in the Park.

Entries will be published in the Bury Free Press before being judged by a panel to find the canniest canine.

Event organiser Jenny Baskett, St Nicholas Hospice Care Events and Challenges Fundraiser, said: “We hope Paws in the Park will be a wonderful day out for dogs and their owners as well as raising funds for a worthy cause, but first we need to find a photogenic pooch to take a starring role in promoting the event.

“If you think your pet has what it takes, please send in their picture.

Their pedigree doesn’t matter, as we are looking for personality that shines through.”

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 news@buryfreepress.co.uk, with ‘Paws in the Park competition’ in the subject line.

The closing date is 9am on Monday, February 29 and the winner will be announced in the Bury Free Press on Friday, March 11.

The Paws in the Park event, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care and in partnership with Swayne and Partners, will feature various dog-themed activities, including, of course, a dog show and the chance to compete in a range of different dog classes, have-a-go agility areas and displays, chill-out area, dog portraits and trade stands.
