Meet handsome 8-year-old black and tan longhair 'Jasper' and his human, Helga Ramsay, of Wisbech, UK. They are pictured getting a make-over yesterday, which they won in a rafffle at Orchard Dog Grooming Parlour in Wisbech. Jasper looks so excited to have won! Excerpt from the Wisbech Standard: A doting dog owner and her dashing Dachshund have both treated to a make-over thanks to an unusual raffle prize.
As Jasper was pampered and groomed by college students, Mrs Ramsay had her hair cut and styled by hairdresser Lynn Ellis. Mrs Ellis who has been a qualified hairdresser for 22 years, is changing careers and is training to become a dog groomer.
As eight-year-old Jasper enjoyed all the attention, Mrs Ramsay said: "He is a very clever little dog and quite a character."
Jasper is good friends with Mrs Ramsay's other dog, Jack, who is blind. She said: "Jasper looks after him and acts as his eyes." Jasper is also friends with two hamsters, Petal and Ronald, allowing them to run along his tummy and sit on his head.
