Is your best friend set to be a ‘poster-pup’?

There’s still time make a bid for your best friend to be the poster-pup for a great new fund raising idea being planned by St Michael’s Hospice.

You’ve got until Wednesday at 5pm to enter your dog in a competition that’s looking for a great photograph of a dog that will feature on all the event publicity and the posters for the new ‘Wag This Way’ event being held later this year.

The Hospice is encouraging dog owners to send them their best photos of their beautiful four legged friends showing off their ‘pawsome’ personalities. The only rule is that the dogs need to be photographed outside – but the hospice doesn’t mind where.


Entries should be submitted by email to with the subject line ‘Poster Pup’ – the closing date is this Wednesday, August 15th at 5pm. A Hospice team will then shortlist the photos, and the finalists will be posted on the Hospice Facebook page for your votes.

The winning pooch will feature on the Wag this Wag event poster and publicity surrounding this new event which is taking place on Sunday October 7th at Rye Nature Reserve. It will be a fun 5K walk and is the perfect excuse to get together with friends, show off your canine companions and enjoy this beautiful area of Sussex.

Save the date and keep an eye out for the official launch and get snapping!
