Whatever will I have to do next?...Thanks Vickingxc for the idea of an Easter picture competition. As usual anything goes, it could be a photo, a sketch, kids picture or anything else that takes your fancy.

And the prize - well there isn't one, unless we find something suitable. We will however put your picture on the front page!

Please post your Easter photos in the deerhound forum just here and here's one for starters....

The Commisionsing Editor of Easy Living magazine, Hannah Shuckburgh, is looking for a Deerhound and owner (women only for this I'm afraid) with a strong resemblance to each other.

They'd like to see any glamorous Scottish Deerhounds owners who might like to be part of their article. Easy Living will arrange to shoot you and your hound in a studio in London (paying all expenses), provide a stylist, hair and makeup artist – and will provide you with a beautiful print to keep forever. They would also like to do a short interview with you about your special connection with your dog.
If you are interested please post your pictures here or email them to Rob (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or direct to Hannah at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your contact details. You will need to work fast though as the shoot is on 28th March.
Please see the forum for more details by clicking here.
