COMPETITION: Signed copies of Jennifer Skiff's The Divinity of Dogs

Those of you who have been lucky enough to have a dog - or have been around one for any length of time - will know it's true: dogs really do profoundly touch and change people's lives.

In The Divinity of Dogs, Jennifer Skiff brings together a number of extraordinary personal stories, grouped in collections such as Love, Intuition, Gratitude and Compassion, all of which celebrate the unshakable bond between man and man's best friend. From Little Bit the Chihuahua who identified a lump in her owner's breast that doctors didn't detect, to Emma the Rottweiler, who pulled her owner back from the brink of suicide, these powerful, real accounts will be treasured by any dog lover.

Jennifer Skiff has very kindly provided us with three signed copies to give away to Dogs Trust supporters. All we ask is that you share your own story about how a dog has changed your life. It doesn't have to be as dramatic as the account above and it doesn't have to be about your own dog, but we want to know about a genuine meaningful moment you've shared with a canine pal.

Please send your stories to (comments on this post don't count as entries, though you're welcome to add them).The closing date is 5pm on Monday 3rd December.

If you're unlucky, want to give another copy as a Christmas present or simply can't wait to see if you've won, grab your own copy from Hay House for just £7.19.

The idea is excellent! It's too pity that stories from other countries are not accepted. Clever, brave and reliable dogs live in other areas too :))

We certainly agree - and the stories in the book are from around the world.

However, postage costs being what they are, we have to restrict most competitions to our core audience in the UK and Ireland. Sorry. :(
