OVER the past year, pets across Dorset and the New Forest have been enjoying quality time with their owners as they have been spending more time at home.

Although life is beginning to return to normal and many are returning to work and life outside of the confines of their home, pets are still an integral part of people's lives.

We want to put your pets in the spotlight and hear all about them; from their favourite acitivites to their quirky behaviours.

So whether you own a devoted dog, a much-loved moggy, a horse or hamster, chickens or chinchillas - we want to see them and celebrate the role your pets play in your life.
