Last month, to celebrate National Pet Month, we asked animal lovers across the country to show us the special relationships between their pets and children as part of our Kids and Pets Photo Competition. We were truly bowled over by the gorgeous entries that were sent in, which made choosing the winner of a £500 voucher to spend on toys and treats at PetPlanet.co.uk a very difficult decision indeed!
While sadly we could only pick one competition winner, we thought we would take this opportunity to introduce you to just a few of our favourite runners up – and of course show off the adorable winning entry! Without further ado, here are our top Kids and Pets photos:
Chantelle Passarrelli sent us this gorgeous snap of her dog Rupert receiving one of many hugs from the lovely Beatrix.
Leanne Phillips wowed us with this beautiful black and white snap of her daughter and her horse.
We loved this photo from Charley Onslow, in which we can see six-year-old Jake and his best friend, Blue, the one-year-old Siberian Husky, relaxing on the sofa.
Daryl Williams melted our hearts with this snap of Liam giving a kiss to his very sleepy best friend.
Hayley Smart sent us this fantastic photo of Jazzy and her rabbit Nigel getting ready for their daily walk around the garden. We love that pink lead!
Everyone here at Animal Friends adored this snap of Sophia and Rosy from Nina Webb. Who can resist a sleeping kitten?
But in the end there could only be one winner, and for us it was none other than this stunning photo from Jennifer Steeden. It’s the perfect combination of cute and funny – we can clearly see that three-month-old Jacob and Steven the chocolate Labrador are best friends, while the affectionate head lick – which Jacob doesn’t seem to mind too much! – adds a touch of comedy. So congratulations to Jennifer! We hope Steven enjoys the £500 worth of treats and toys.
A big thank you to everyone who got involved in the competition. We loved seeing your fantastic photos, all of which you can browse through here in our Facebook Gallery.
