Inspired by the beautiful frontispieces published by our friends on Country Life, Shooting Times published our first “Dog of the Week” in November last year. It was an instant hit and we have been inundated with pictures of dogs ever since. Now Orvis — which was founded in Vermont in 1856 to sell hunting, shooting and fishing gear — has decided to join in by sponsoring Dog of the Week.
Readers who would like their dogs to be considered for the page should send a good-quality portrait photograph of the hound to steditorials@timeinc. com. Images will need to be 1.5megabytes — no blurry smartphone snaps please — and show the dog’s face. Shooting Times has no favourites; every breed from terriers
