PET OF THE WEEK . . . Barney - a two and a half year old springer spaniel entered by his owner Alan Smith of Balvie Crescent, Milngavie, who receives a £15 voucher for Creature Comforts pet shop.
WE launched our Pets Factor contest last week and entries have been flying in.
The competition is back by popular demand for its third year, and it’s a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on your pouch, moggie or any other favourite family pet you feel should be honoured as a top pet.
The contest is open to everyone with a pet and each week we will pick a winner who will receive a £15 voucher to spend in Creature Comforts pet shop in Milngavie, who are again sponsoring the competition.
All entries and pictures will then be put in the paper alongside details of how you can vote - with the winner receiving a £30 voucher for the pet shop.
Creature Comforts stocks everything you would ever need for your pet from specialist cat and dog food, treats and toys, beds, carry baskets, hay sawdust, aquatics including fish and reptiles, tanks and other supplies.
They also have supplies for wild birds such as wild bird mix, sunflower seeds and peanuts.
As well as pets, including birds - cockatiel, budgies and parrots - the shop can also supply rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and hamsters. The shop has loads of gift ideas for your much-loved pet, such as a range of toys and treats.
You must be in it to win it so to enter all you have to do is send a photograph of your pet to Pets Factor, Milngavie and Bearsden Herald, 27 Stewart Street, Milngavie, G62 6BW.
As well as the photo, we need to know the name of your pet, the breed and age, the owner’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail address if applicable.
You can also e-mail entries. Send your pet’s picture in jpeg format, the original size it came off the digital camera, in the e-mail attachment options don’t resize - to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the details already listed, but head your e-mail Pets Factor.
We will publish some of the photographs sent in over the coming weeks and all entries will then be published with details of how readers can cast their votes for the overall winner.
