This week’s winner of Pet of the Week is a Hatfield Dalmatian who always gets his own way.

Benjamin, known as Benji, lives with his owner Marta and canine sibling Tara.

Marta said: “He is the apple of my eye and I love him very much.

“I’m forever covering him in lipstick when I kiss his head.”

Benji loves walkies even when it’s raining, always gets his own way, and has an obsession with squeaky toys.”

Marta added: “But his biggest love is food. He tries to steal it off the counter.

“He can be very sensitive, stubborn and moody but also very playful.

“He is the most handsome boy in Hertfordshire.”
