COULD your perfect pooch be St Clare’s Cutest Canine?

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 St Clare Hospice’s Cutest Canine Competition, launching in January 2020 as part of their annual Winter Walkies event!?

The West Essex and East Herts charity is searching for a handsome hound or pretty pup to officially ‘lead the pack’ at its annual 5km Winter Walkies countryside walk, taking place on Sunday 23rd February 2020.

St Clare’s Cutest Canine competition takes place across the charity’s social media pages, where local people and hospice ‘followers’ can vote for who they think is the ‘cutest canine’ by ‘liking’ their favourite photo out of a gallery of doggy snaps.

The winner of the competition will launch the Winter Walkies event in February 2020, as St Clare’s official Cutest Canine – and they will also receive a hamper of doggy goodies!

“Yes, it’s back – our favourite campaign of the year, dedicated to celebrating the cutest dogs in our local community!” says Emma Broadbent, Challenges & Events Fundraiser at St Clare Hospice.

“2020 will be our 7th year of running the Cutest Canine competition, which is much-loved here at the Hospice and by our social media followers. Who doesn’t love cute photos of dogs?! Last year’s contest was won by perfect Pug, Elsa, from Harlow – but we’re wondering who will be crowned the champion in the turn of the decade!

Emma adds, “If you think your dog stands a chance at getting the most ‘likes’ and winning the competition, then you absolutely have to get in touch and send in a photo! We love seeing your entries and can’t wait for the competition to begin. May the best dog win!”

All you need to do to enter the competition is:

1. Register for the Winter Walkies event at stclarehospice.org.uk/event/winter-walkies

2. Email a picture of your marvelous mutt and a brief description of your pet (including name, breed and age) to [email protected] by 12noon on Friday 17th January 2020 to go forward to the public vote.

3. 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.

The winning dog and their owner will be invited to officially launch the Winter Walkies event on Sunday 23rd February 2020 at 11am, and will also receive a hamper of doggy goodies. The event is taking place at St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood Road, Hastingwood, Essex, CM17 9JX.

All entrants to the Cutest Canine Competition must have registered for Winter Walkies 2020 in order to be eligible to enter. Registration costs £10 for adults and £5 for children, which includes a free soup, dog rosette and certificates for children.
