Intercounty Saffron Walden in association with Claire Moire photography recently hosted a ‘How cute is your pooch’ competition and raised £249.50 for the Guide Dog charity. Dog owners were encouraged to bring along their dogs to be photographed on the 18th October, and make a donation from £5. The photos were then posted on the Saffron Walden Facebook page.
There was a great response from dog owners, with 29 dogs entering the competition to win the title of the cutest pooch and a canvas print of their dog. The general public judged the competition by liking their favorite dogs on the Saffron Walden Facebook page, and the dog with the most likes won the contest.
The winning pooch, with 168 likes was Pixie (featured), followed by Augustus in second place with 121 likes, and The Beast with 117 likes.
Alan from the Guide Dog Charity stated: ”Fantastic day, wonderful commitment; we are very grateful to you and your team for supporting Guide Dogs so successfully. I believe it was one of the best events for Guide Dogs I’ve ever seen.”
Intercounty would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated to raise money for this worthy cause.
