And the winners are....


We had a lot of fun judging the caption comp and I have to say the standard this month was excellent!

I need the following people to send their name and address to julia@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk so she can sort out your prizes. May help to say at the same time what type of dog you have as I'm not sure but we may need sizes for the prizes...

From the blog the winners were:

Chips: This inflatable is harder to blow up that I expected.

loll100: Does my bum smell clean in this?/Don't even think about it, it WON'T fit.

(We're leaving it to the chief sub to decide which one of Loll 100's to print in the mag - every now and again we wonder how far we can go without offending people who may be less liberal than us lot. It's probably because we've already offended so many people over the last 18 years that we're eventually starting to learn caution! For example, the edition with all the naked men with their bits cleverly obscured by their Dachshunds and Irish Wolfhounds caused a massive reaction, and not the one we expected!

It was sensitively shot - you couldn't see anything significant. (It was an hilarious shoot though - they had to be naked, it was before photoshop got really good at removing stuff so even skimpy pants were abandoned!) We had an article quoting a psychologist who told us, "What can you tell about a man by the size of his dog." It was very funny and did make you think.

We may still have them available as a back issue if you're interested, but we learnt to send them out in plain brown envelopes after scores of little old ladies were seen running out of newsagents blushing as some newsagents placed the title on the top shelf with the porn! I guess it was before Calendar girls, people we're still very surprised to seeing 'real' people in the nude.

Well done everyone, some crackers came in direct to the email address and by post - so you may still have won - the only ones I list are the ones posted on the blog.
