It's competition time again! Can you think of an amusing caption for the above? First prize wins a Fleece Pets Home Mattress from Rosewood and an exclusive Retired Greyhound Trust cuddly Homer Toy. Five runners-up will win Hi-Travel Passport Holders and non-spill Travel bowls.

Can you guess which breeds Bolan's parents are? We've not received any correct answers by post so far, so this must be tricky. I'll be giving clues if no one gets it.

Both competitions finish June 5th - so please email your best efforts to comps@dogstodaymagzne.co.uk before then. With cross question - post as a comment here as I will let you know asap if you are correct - or half correct! Come back for clues...

Good luck everyone!

Still no one getting close.

First clue:

One side's breed got a name that is sometimes association with an attitude, the other side is hard to spell!

Beverley Cuddy said...

Gosh my typing is rubbish - that should have said...

one side's breed name is sometimes associated with an attitude

the other side is notoriously hard to spell

Chapstaff said...

Attitude...hmm!

Min Pins & Yorkies are feisty little dogs with attitude, the cream colour could come from the Papillon

Min Pin X Papillon

or Yorkie X Pappillon

Chapstaff said...

Chihuahua is hard to spell, as is Dachshund? Don't know about the cream colour though

Getting any warmer??

Cocker (cocky) spaniel
Shih Tsu

Clare said...

Dandie Dinmont X Shih Tzu

Beverley Cuddy said...

Last two guesses are 50% correct!

clare said...

Cavalier King Charles X Shih Tzu?

Chapstaff said...

Cocker X Shih Tsu then

Chapstaff said...

That'll be it. Some people reckon some Cocker Spaniels suffer from Cocker rage.......& Shih Tsu is hard to spell. The colour's right too

Chapstaff said...

Surely not Shih Tsu X Dandie Dinmont?

Chapstaff said...

Just leaves Cocker X Dandie then. The colour's all wrong though. If that's right donate the prize to someone else, cos I'd never have got that without the clues.

shitz tsu x jack rusell

shitz tsu x cocker

shitz tsu x shipperke?

Clare - you are the winner! Can you email me your full name and address and your preference for a general dog book - or a breed-specific book. If breed specific please do specify a breed!

My email is beverley@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk

Well done - and the clues explained. Sometimes people can be accused of having a Cavalier attitude, and as you can see Shih Tzu can be a tricky old breed name to spell!!

Still time to have a go at the caption everyone!
