Thank you to everyone who submitted photographs for our Pet of the Year competition, in association with HJ Lea Oakes Pet Food Superstore. 

The deadline for entries has now passed and the judges will be sifting through the hundreds of fabulous photographs to pick the best.

The photos have been coming in streams of your precious pets, from Anthony Farrall's dog Gizmo who's hobbies are chasing balls, walkies, rolling over and 'SIT!' to Karolyn Spencer's dog Benji who likes to try and jump in the shower whenever he gets a chance.

 

A shortlist of 12 pets will be published in the Ellesmere Port Pioneer on Wednesday, October 22, the Chester Chronicle and Flintshire Chronicles on Thursday, October 23 and online and you will then be asked to vote for your favourite.

Up for grabs for the winner of our photographic competition is a fabulous £100 hamper from plus two runner-up prize hampers worth £50 each.
