Send us a dog snap for our 2021 Star Paws calendar and you could in a holiday

The Daily Star and Blue Cross are on a mission to find 12 doggie calendar stars for our Star Paws 2021 charity calendar.

Is your dog the UK’s best old timer? The sleepiest dog in Britain? Or has your pup’s love got you through lockdown?

To enter, simply upload a picture using the form below and tell us a bit about your dog and they could become one of the 12 stars of the calendar.

And it’s not just the fame of being a calendar star that’s on offer. Our 12 stars will win doggie welcome packs full of treats, toys courtesy of Blue Cross, plus a £10 voucher for Dapperpets.co.uk and a Pet Safe Kibble Chase™ Roaming Treat Dispenser, plus there's a grand prize up for grabs of an Away Resorts holiday for up to four people and two dogs.

Our panel will shortlist the best pictures, which will be put to a public vote on Dailystar.co.uk in the coming weeks.

The calendar will be available for sale on our website shortly after the winners are announced, with all the profits going to Blue Cross animal charity.

You can donate to the Blue Cross at bluecross.org.uk/dailystar. By donating to Blue Cross, you can transform the lives of pets in the UK by helping to provide life-saving operations, paying for their food or finding loving new homes. Any amount you can give will help change the lives of thousands of pets across the UK.
