Drum roll please…

Here is the last winner of the Spring 2018 collection LEAPUP dog model search… beautiful Georgia (#310)… congratulations Georgia!


Anyone who is interested in continuing to put your name forward can join my ‘Model Dog Club‘ Facebook group where I’ll be periodically looking for models for new collections and running special offers.

 Group members can occasionally post their fave photo of their dogs, I might be looking for particular poses, or themes I might be looking for rescue dogs or puppies, particular breeds etc… I’ll always let you know what I’m looking for. [PS I expect my next search to be early February and every two or three months after that] 

There are some tips on how to increase your chances of success in on the Club Facebook page.

Winner 1



CONGRATULATIONS to the very first prize winner, Eric (entry 76) who is 5 today!!! I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing him a very happy birthday! His mom will be receiving a set of dog love postcards in the post.


Also just a little note to say WOW!

Thank you for all of your wonderful entries to the model search, each and every doggie is so beautiful and full of character… this is going to be a very, very (if not impossible) decision. There have been more entrants (115 at the last count) than I was expecting so I’ll also be upping the number of spot prizes too. Hurray!

To help me choose some winners I’m happy to report that I now have dog lover, 9 year old Felix, on the case to choose a doggie he’d like to see in a Christmas design… and I’ll announce this prize winner this weekend!

The first Spring collection model will be chosen on Monday too so watch this space!!! Don’t forget to be chosen as the model for the new collection you have to have followed all of the instructions on the pinned post.

Thanks everyone and have a great day!

From Leanne, Sophia (the lab) and Oscar (the Cav) xx
