We’re all guilty of it… Every one of us has done it… Sat and stared at your pet thinking “he’d look cool in some sweet shades or a flat cap”. Then, we put them through the fun of dressing them up like us for our own amusement. Whether they do it to make us happy or are just good boys, our pets suffer through our little dress-ups for two minutes of human fulfilment.
And now, Tic Watches has taken it one step further and made it into a competition – and I would say it’s a bad thing, until I noticed that a Yorkshire pet came in at number one. So now, obviously, it’s the greatest thing ever!
Claire Burke, 55 from Skipton, was crowned the winner of the competition for an adorable photo of Lily, her nine-year-old Whippet. Couldn’t get anymore Yorkshire than a Whippet now, could you? Lily beat 130 entries to become top dog in this prestigious event, which is a pretty impressive feat given all she had to do was wear some Ray Bans. Check out who the little cutie took on to be crowned number one!
