There will be one winner and one runner-up who will both win a selection of prizes.

HERE are two more entrants for this year’s Henley’s Top Dog competition — and they’re both called Boris.

The first Boris belongs to Robert de Board, of Blandy Road, Henley, who says: “In 1939 a wonderful film was made, The Wizard of Oz withJudy Garland as Dorothy.

“She had many adventures but no matter what happened, she was always accompanied by her faithful dog Toto, who was a brindle cairn terrier.

“Today there is another brindle cairn terrier called Boris. He’s here in Henley and his best friend is Nelle. I am soon going to be making a journey over to ‘The Rainbow’ in Lower Assendon with Boris and Nelle for a glass of pop. Boris, as always, will have a large bowl of ‘aqua pura’.

“On this journey, however, they are unlikely to meet a Cowardly Lion or a Tin Man but they may well meet a Scarecrow or two.

“You can be sure though, that Robert and Nelle will be protected by the brave and barking Boris.”

The second Boris is a three-year-old miniature schnauzer owned by Richard Phillips, of Greys Road, Henley.

Richard says: “He doesn’t have a colourful history as a rescue dog but is simply a great family pet.

“He is pictured in his favourite pose, waiting on the stairs for somebody to come home (he has a great view of the drive from this vantage point, to spot cars or humans arriving).

“His recent adventures include chasing some ducks into the Thames and he will steal any ‘food’ he can find, such as chocolates and mouse poison (the latter requiring an expensive visit to the vet).

“Because I am disabled, his companionship gets me active and out of the house each day to exercise him.”
