    WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

    The winners: You need to let me know when you have chosen your charities. We’ll be posting an article featuring your photos on the main website and on our facebook page. It would be good to have a sentence or two telling readers a bit about you and your dog. You can email me (see below) or PM me with this.

    I’d also be delighted to send the winners and the two runners up a signed copy of my new book – The Labrador Handbook - when it is published in October.

    If that appeals to you, you’ll need to email me your postal address.

    Many congratulations, and thank you again for taking part :)

    Well done!
    Lovely photos.
    Don't know about anyone else, but I love seeing all these photos and all the entries had that something special to draw you to them. A tough decision but looks like the puppies just have that pulling power.
    Will be excited to hear about this year's winning charities.

    Hi everyone, just wanted to say a big thank you to all the people who voted Baxter's photo the winner of the mobile competition. Thrilled he won is a understatement as all the photos were fantastic. As you can see by his latest photo Baxter was taken aback with the news!

    If it's ok I would like the donation to go to The Cinnamon Trust a charity who help the elderly and the terminally ill with their pets.
    Pippa I would be delighted to receive your new book when it comes out, it will go with your other two books that I have. I will email you all my details. Thanks again, it was so much fun xx

    Wow, been away, missed all the voting and came back to find this! Thank you to everyone who voted from Lola and me, there were so many wonderful photos. We're having a good think about the charity we'd like to pick, but we'll let you know soon.
    Pippa - I could see your message but couldn't reply - I'd love a copy of your new book, thank you! I'll email you details and things.

    We've decided that we'd like to donate to Medical Detection Dogs. One of Lola's littermates, Buddy, will hopefully be trained as an alert dog for a young boy with epilepsy and I think it's amazing that even in this age of technology that dogs can provide such a special role.

    This is Lola with Buddy a few days before she came home with us:
