Welwyn Garden City dog wins Britain's next top pug model
A Welwyn Garden City dog has won a modelling competition, beating 900 others of its popular breed and taking home the title of Britain's next top pug model.
Martyn, 35, and Kelly West, of Welwyn Garden City, pug Daisy has won The Next Top Pug Model competition.
She was crowned the winner by celebrity judges including Judge Rinder, Danny Walters, Dr Christian from Embarrassing Bodies, and others, at Pugfest, in Manchester, on Sunday, July 16.
Kelly said: “We are over the moon that she won. We don’t envy the judges for having to make the final decision, it couldn’t have been easy.”
Kelly and Martyn rehomed Daisy when she was 10 months old after tragically losing their first pug, Poppy.
At 11 and a half months old Poppy went in to be spayed and had a fatal allergic reaction to a painkiller and sadly died.
A month after Poppy died the couple had a phone call from the lady who they had got Poppy from telling them that her friend was rehoming a 10-month-old fawn girl (Daisy) who had already been spayed.
The couple, who also own Daisy’s one-year-old cousin Lilly, have now had Daisy in their family for nearly two years.
