Holiday hounds – 20 summer-loving pets wearing sunglasses
With summer officially here and a heatwave sweeping across the country, many of us will be reaching for our sunglasses, but it appears that pets are getting in on action too.
That’s why we ran a competition to find the most brilliant and hilarious photos of our furry friends wearing shades.
Claire Burke, from Skipton, was crowned the winner of the competition for an adorable photo of Lily, her nine-year-old Whippet. For taking top spot, we’re sending Claire a brand new Tommy Hilfiger watch.
