Long-list revealed in quest to find Country Walking's new 'Missing Millie'

We’ve hidden our dog Millie in the pages of Country Walking every issue for the past nine years. But she'll soon be replaced by one of these fresh new hounds.

In the course of her varied career Millie's turned up on the Isle of Mull, in a cave in the Peak District, driving a tank, on top of Leith Hill Tower and digging in a graveyard, and frankly it’s time we gave the old girl a rest. The competition to find a replacement was launched in our August issue, and from the scores of entries we're now able to reveal the long-list, from which a final selection of 10 will be made from which MILLIE HERSELF will select her successor in a formal, videotaped ceremony.

A shortlist from this selection (each of whom will win a revolutionary Dexas Snack DuO from America worth £16.99) will be passed to Millie for the final stage in the next two weeks! Stay tuned...
