IT’S that time of year again.

Throughout the month of December, we are asking our readers to send in pictures of their pets dressed in their festive fancy dress.

Do you enjoy dressing up your pets at Christmas? If so, then why not share your pictures with us?

As part of our Festive Pets competition, The Guardian will be showing your best pet pictures in our online gallery.

We had an excellent response to last year’s appeal, with plenty of readers keen to show off their scaly, feathery and furry friends getting into the Christmas spirit.

So if your pet is happy to wear some reindeer antlers or a festive outfit, share them with us.

Email your pictures to or share them with us via our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

There will be a prize for the winner.

You can find us on Twitter by following @SWGuardian or on Facebook by searching South Wales Guardian.

After receiving a record number of entrants last year we decided that cocker spaniel Saffi was our winner.

Speaking to the Guardian last year, Saffi’s owner Tayla Wheeler, from Betws, said: “I’d just like to say thank you to The Guardian for choosing Saffi as their winner.

“She melts everybody’s heart that she meets”

You can keep up to date with our winner on instagram by searching @MillieandSaffi.
