I love my dog!

I love my dog!

JOIN the Henley Standard and official sponsor Naughty Mutt Nice in celebrating the bond between human and hound.

This year the theme is inspired by the dog-friendly palliative care at the Sue Ryder Nettlebed hospice , where dog owners can be visited by their much-loved pets.

In response to this, we are asking you to tell us: why is your dog your best friend?

We want to hear all about how your dog has been there for you and your family, always with a woof and a wag!

We don’t mind if you’ve entered before either — do it again because this time it’s for a very good cause.

Pop your entry down in about 200 words and email it to us with an accompanying photo — all photos and stories will be published in the Henley Standard and posted online.

The deadline for entries is Monday, August 21. This year’s judges are double Olympic rowing champion Alex Gregory MBE (guest judge), Erik D’Arcy Donnelly, of the Henley Vets, Naughty Mutt Nice proprietor Karole Robertson, Henley’s Top Dog founder Aspen Weatherburn and Henley Standard editor Simon Bradshaw.

How to enter

Please email your entry, together with your name, address, daytime telephone number and an email address to:
topdog@henlystandard.co.uk and hello@hellohenley.co.uk
