Legoland Windsor is on the hunt for the country’s top dog in celebration of the pet's status as man's best friend.
As part of the opening of the park's new section, Heartlake City, the resort carried out a survey which revealed two thirds of pet owning girls aged between six and 12 said dogs make the best animal friends.
Now the resort is looking for the perfect Best Furry Friend (BFF) to recreate in Lego.
“Children are totally passionate about their pets and it is something we reflect in the new Lego Friends area at the resort, and what prompted this poll," said Legoland Windsor Resort’s PR manager, Lauren Moss.
“It clearly confirms that dogs really are a girl’s best friend and to celebrate we want to find the UK’s ultimate pet pooch.
“We’re asking children to share their favourite pet pictures and tell us why their dog is so special.
“Then we will recreate the UK’s ‘top dog’ in Lego where they will join the other Lego Friends’ pets later this summer.”
Children can nominate their pet dog to be recreated in Lego by posting on picture of them and their pet on the resort's facebook page.
Deadline for submissions is tomorrow (Friday).
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
