Congratulations! Your generosity has helped us to raise £5,000 – which means we can begin sponsoring a gorgeous guide dog puppy. We’re so excited, and know it will mean so much to the person whose life will be changed by this special canine companion.
As our way of saying thank you, we gave you the chance to come up with a name for the Yours puppy. There’s no better way to truly become a part of this incredible story than to be the person who gives our puppy its first gift in life – a meaningful and unique name.
Here are some of the suggestions from the Yours team…
- “What about Sammy – after the Yours squirrel! Only, unlike the pesky squirrel hidden in every copy of Yours, this pup will always be easy to find.” – Valery, Editor at Large
- “Bramley – as in the apple of my eye.” – Kate, Deputy Production Editor
- “I like the name Chipper because it means cheerful and lively, which sums up a Labrador puppy perfectly.” – Della, Art Editor
- “Morecambe, after Eric of course!” – Lizzy, Editorial Assistant
- “Surely it has to be Lupo – our puppy will be treated like royalty, after all!” – Laura, Senior News Writer
