We all love our own pets and in their own special way, animals can be uniquely beautiful, handsome, striking.
Now there is a chance to combine affection for the faithful pet with photography skills in a superb new competition run by Palin & Way Pet Supplies.
Based in Kingskerswell, Palin & Way have launched a competition for the best pet pictures with a first prize of £100, plus a trophy. The runner-up prize is £50 and £25 for third place.
The deadline for entry is August 12 and all pet pictures will be posted on the Palin & Way Facebook page. The image with the most likes will be the winner.
So, now is the time to capture those wonderful moments of the pet dog leaping across Walls Hill or through Cockington woods, the cat chilling in the garden, or the family tortoise enjoying some sunshine.
