Is your dog the region's finest?

CHINESE New Year is today and this year it’s the Year of the Dog.

According to chinesenew-, a person born in a dog year is defined by their loyalty.

It said: “They will never abandon their friends, family or work.

“Honest and just, they are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a dog friend for advice and help.”

And to celebrate the Year of the Dog, DNG Media are bringing back a popular competition as we search for the region’s most photogenic pooch.

To enter email Amanda at [email protected] with a picture of your dog, their name, age and your name and address.

Enter by February 28 and the winning dog will get a mini photoshoot and have their picture on the front of their owner’s local newspaper – Annandale Herald, Annandale Observer, Dumfries Courier or Moffat News.
