Freddie Wins 'Pets On Parade' Competition
Meet handsome 14-month-old black and tan silver dapple longhair 'Freddie' and his human Heather Taylor, who hail from Worle, UK. Freddie won the local paper's Pets On Parade competition after a public vote from readers. Way to go Freddie! Excerpt from the Weston Mercury: A dog owner has pledged to 'cherish every moment' with her terminally ill companion after it won the Mercury's Pets on Parade competition. The pedigree hound has a terminal heart condition, which could cause him to drop dead at any moment. Heather, aged 58, said: "He's such a great pet and we love him very much. It's awful that he has this illness, but we cherish every moment with him." Read all about it at the Weston Mercury.
