COMPETITION! Get creative to win James Barklee's Sad Tales for Me... A BioDOGraphy



James Barklee has a story to tell. It's his biodography, and it's all about wonderful things like the joy of chasing squirrels and sad things like the terribly slow food service at home. The talented pooch has even beautifully illustrated his story and published it in a gorgeous hardback book.

Would you like your very own copy?

James has kindly given us five copies to give away... but to be in with a chance of winning, we need some happy tales from you!

How to Enter


  • Email your best happy dog story, name and address to feedback@dogstrust.org.uk and we'll pick our five favourites. We don't mind if they're fact or fiction, but they must be original, and they have to include a dog.
  • Keep stories short please! There's no set word limit, but up to 250 words maximum would be appreciated. While you're welcome to share your stories as comments, only emailed entries will be considered.

If you're unlucky, want to give a copy as a Christmas present or simply can't wait to see if you've won, grab your own copy on Amazon for £9.99WAIT! If you use the quick, easy, and FREE Give As You Live while you're shopping there, you'll earn a few pennies for the dogs in our care, too!
