It's gone to the dogs as Jewish Blind and Disabled supporters' pets win prizes

Jonathan Ross chooses winners of annual photographic competition


A Pesach set-up which impressed celebrity judge Jonathan Ross won Artemis first prize in Jewish Blind and Disabled’s annual PETron contest, for which supporters submit images of their furry friends. 

Admiring the photo of the tallit-wearing saluki, the broadcaster said: “This was a worthy first place as you could see Artemis is all set for Passover and even has her own Seder plate.”
Artemis has other attributes, providing pet therapy for Cure Cancer @ UCL. She also won her class at Crufts this year.

Her proud owner, Natasha Hamilton from Stanmore, said: “Artemis has plenty of love to share so if anyone would love a visit when the isolation measures have stopped, please let me know via JBD.”

Contest runners-up were rabbit siblings Fluffy and Cutie and dog Huckleberry.

The PETron scheme allows supporters to sign their pets up for a monthly £5 contribution to the charity. The pet receives a handpicked gift and all PETrons are eligible for the annual photo contest.

JBD chief executive Lisa Wimborne said: “The wonderful photos we receive for this competition are always a highlight of our year — and especially now, in these difficult times. Huge congratulations to Artemis and special thanks to all our PETrons and their owners.”
