Santa Paws - SLIDESHOW

WE have been inundated with fantastic photos of your pets getting in the festive spirit.

Dogs, cats, gerbils and even horses have got in on the act as their owners spread some Christmas cheer.

We will be revealing the winner of the competition in Saturday’s Hartlepool Mail.

Thank you for sending in your excellent pictures and keep visiting the Mail website to see more slideshows of events from around Hartlepool and East Durham.
