It’s the contest that really set tails wagging after we received more than 200 entries in our hunt to find the picture perfect dog.

The judges are due to meet on Thursday to decide which canine is worthy of fronting St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Paws in the Park event and the winner will be announced in next week’s Bury Free Press.
