Is your pooch positively perfect? Is your dog dazzling? Is your cuddly companion the cutest? Is your furry friend the fairest of them all?
If the answer to these questions is a resounding ‘yes,’ then, why not enter your pup into our Cutest Canine Competition, launching on Monday 20th January 2020?!
The competition, run as part of our annual Winter Walkies 5k charity dog walk event, calls on local puppy parents to send in a photo of their beloved pooch which will feature in a collection of entries on social media. The dog with the most ‘Likes’ at the end of the week (Friday 24th January) wins a bespoke doggy hamper, and gets to ‘lead the pack’ at Winter Walkies on Sunday 23rd February as St Clare’s official Cutest Canine.
All you need to do to enter the competition is:
- Register for the Winter Walkies event at stclarehospice.org.uk/winterwalkies
- Email a picture of your marvelous mutt and a brief description of your pet (including name, breed and age) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12noon on Friday 17th January 2020 to go forward to the public vote.
- Encourage your friends and family to vote for your pet when the gallery of all the competition entrants is published on the St Clare Facebook and Instagram channels on Monday 20th January 2020. The dog that receives the most ‘Likes’ when voting closes at 12noon on Friday 24th January 2020 will be named the winner.
All entrants to the Cutest Canine Competition must have registered for Winter Walkies 2020 in order to be eligible to enter.
