Grufts: the people's dog show

Crufts is not being televised this year because breed definitions which lead to congenital deformities in dogs are opposed by the RSPCA. None of the major channels will carry the competition although you can still watch it on line.

However, anyone with cute doggy snaps is invited to post their entry to Grufts, the Guardian's alternative to Crufts.

The categories are:
(1) Most Stylish
(2) Most Talented
(3) Most Loveable
(4) Most Heroic
(5) Best Lookalike (your hound can bear an uncanny resemblance to yourself, a famous dog or, indeed, a celebrity)
(6) Best-travelled (your picture, Photoshopped or otherwise, should show your dog in an exotic location)

Just send in a picture to their Flickr group.
