Bournemouth makes Top 10 pet-style

With the travel industry reopening, 10 pets are getting in the holiday spirit and a dog from Bournemouth has been named one of the most stylish in the UK.

Arthur - Bernese Mountain Dog

Tic Watches ran a competition to find the best pictures of UK pets wearing sunglasses and Arthur, James Roff’s Bernese Mountain dog from Bournemouth, made the top 10 for his big shades and curious look.

The watch and sunglasses specialist has scoured the nation for the most brilliant and hilarious photos of our furry friends wearing shades.

Claire Burke, 55 from Skipton, was crowned the winner of the competition for an adorable photo of Lily, her nine-year-old Whippet. From the size of her smile, Lily is clearly loving the summer months and is rocking her tortoiseshell glasses.

Claire said, “Lily loves getting out and about in the Yorkshire sunshine, as you can see from the joy in her face! She’s a wonderful dog and totally deserves her recognition – we’re thrilled to win.”

Having beaten over 130 other entries to take top spot, Claire will now receive a new Tommy Hilfiger watch from the Tic Watches range, worth up to £300.

You can see Lily’s victorious beaming face below, along with Bournemouth’s top dog Arthur and all the other pets who gained national recognition.
