Welcome to Upton Bishop’s virtual pet show

This is your chance to let everyone see just how wonderful your pet is. We’re looking for entrants in ten different categories. We want to see the grumpiest pets, the best dressed pets, the ones which look most like their owners and the ones with the cutest eyes.

Unlike normal pet shows we are not being restrictive about what type of pet you can enter. It can be a cat or a dog, or a mouse or a rat, or a parakeet, a pot-bellied pig or a chicken. Or any other type of pet. The only rule is that it must be, or have been, your pet. Pictures can be of a pet you had years ago or one which is currently sitting on your sofa. This show is open to all,

There are ten categories and you can enter as many pets in as many categories as you like. The more the merrier.

These are the categories:

  1. Best smile
  2. Grumpiest pet
  3. Naughtiest pet
  4. Biggest show off
  5. Pet most like its owner
  6. Best six legs (four if a parrot)
  7. Cutest eyes
  8. Scruffiest pet
  9. Best dressed pet
  10. Best video

Plus an additional category for pictures of all our rainbow pets who are no longer with us who don’t fit into one of the categories above but still deserve to have their pictures on display.

To enter just send a photo of your pet with their name and the details of the category you are entering to claireaustin1@hotmail.com or post it on our Facebook page.

The pictures will be published here on our website.

The competition will run until the end of September.

This time we are not raising money for the church as you have all been very generous already. Instead we want to support two charities which are helping people much less fortunate than us.

The two charities we are supporting are:

There is no fee to enter but if you would like to donate this is what your money could buy:

  • £5 – malarial treatment for five children
  • £14 – mosquito nets
  • £16 – new born baby kit
  • £45 – a year of school for a child
  • £86 – clean water
  • £148 – life saving cholera treatment
