Competition: Win copies of Dawn French's A Tiny Bit Marvellous (featuring Poo the dog!)

There's a new canine resident at Dogs Trust Shoreham who's a little bigger than most. Of course she's pretty easy to look after, since she tends to just sit still all day.... Oh, and she goes by the name of Poo (sometimes).

Poo is a massive statue commissioned to advertise Dawn French's A Tiny Bit Marvellous, and named after the dog character in the book of that name. Since then Ms French has kindly donated the statue to us as a talking point that is helping get more people through the doors of the centre - thank you, Dawn!

The novel, a series of diary entries from the mixed-up Battle family, has become a stonking no. 1 bestseller and now five lucky Dogs Trust supporters have a chance to get their hands on their very own copy!

How to enter:

As it happens, Dogs Trust Shoreham has since re-named Poo! But rather than tell you her new name, we want to know this: if you were going to give this giant dog statue a name, what would it be and why?

Email your answers plus your name and address to and we'll pick our five favourites after the closing date of Tuesday August 30th @ 10am. We can only accept entries from the UK and Ireland, and will not add you to any mailing lists / keep your data.

Good luck!

since I'm in the US and cannot enter, I'll just leave a comment. I would name him Zeus as a tribute to my late great Mini-Daschund Zeus. God love my little Zeus, I had him from 6 weeks of life to when he passed at 13. He lived up to his name in every sense of the word (little guy, big attitude) Plus the statue is a "little" dog so he needs to have a big name. Good luck to all of the entries!
