Island lottery’s going to the dogs

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 - 8:15

FOUR beautiful dogs won the Isle of Wight Lottery’s Lottery Pets competition to feature in the 2013 promotional campaign.
Indie, Pickle, Bobby and Mrs Jingles had their first taste of the action when they posed for a picture together.
The contest attracted more than 100 entries, after it was publicised in the County Press, Isle of Wight Radio and on the Isle of Wight Lottery Facebook page.
Chamber of Commerce group marketing manager, Zoe Stroud, said: "We were blown away by the response. The Island is obviously full of lovable pets and it was so hard to choose the winners but the four dogs edged it because their individual characters shone through.
"We didn’t know what to expect when they turned up for the photocall but there were no prima donnas. They all behaved perfectly."
Becky Jones, of Newport, sent in a picture of Indie, the family’s six-year-old bearded collie, with her head wedged in a cat flap.
Norma Bradley’s five-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Pickle, was pictured after getting stuck into a pile of shredded paper, just after chewing on a glue stick.
Lesley Milbank, of Yarmouth, sent in a picture of Bobby, an 18 month-old cocker poodle, who was celebrating his first birthday by wearing party balloons.
Kerri Hastry, of Sandown, submitted a shot of Mrs Jingles, her one- year-old border collie cross Jack Russell dressed up as a court jester.
