And so another writing competition has come to a close. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part!
The winner of the "Pet Play and the Public" theme is Scoutpupp for his wonderfully written account of going to a goth club as a pup. We hope that lots of people will read it and get a better understanding of what it's like to be a pup. You can read his story here: www.puppypride.co.uk/blogs/45/pup-s-big-day-out
We also want to thank Pup Link for his entry. Stories like his prove that the time and effort we put into running the website is making a difference to people. Thank you for giving us the motivation to carry on. You can read his story here: www.puppypride.co.uk/blogs/44/how-i-found-my-bark-at-london-pride-2015
A box of gifts will be going to ScoutPupp for his win, and we will be sending a special prize to Link as well.
It's Kye's birthday soon, so he'll be at FetishBound on Friday 9th October to give a free gift to every pup that turns up in pup gear. We're still finalising the design but it's going to be a special Puppy Pride dog tag that won't ever be on sale. To make sure you get yours, come and see us on Friday!
Also, check our Twitter to see the designs and vote for your favourite!
Everyone who enters a writing competition will receive a pair of wristbands or a retro dog tag, while stocks last! First prize for each theme will receive a big box of chocolates! We will also be awarding prizes to the runner up and some of our honourable mentions.

If you have any ideas for themes please email them to [email protected] or message "Admin" on the site.
Thank you to everyone who draw a paw print (or horseshoe) for us, everybody loved them at Heaven Circus. So we are going to do something similar for our space at Sexpo, but on a much bigger scale. We have a lot more wall to fill there, so need more paw prints!
If you want your paw print on the wall at Sexpo, and at future events, just email them to [email protected] and they will get printed.
If you want @PuppyPrideUK to tweet them, please tell us your Twitter account in the email.
We are also offering a free pair of wristbands to people who submit a paw print, so please supply your address if you would like them.
You can see the ones that have already been submitted here: www.puppypride.co.uk/paw-prints as well as a template folder if you wish to use it.
None this week, but we are looking for a web UI expert to help with the next major upgrades.
As always, just email [email protected] if you find any bugs or have any suggestions.
