What are your favourite characteristics in your dog?  

Lola loves to play with my son and always looks so graceful when she runs. She is a very affectionate and sweet dog. Lola is very photogenic and was pictured with me for the 209 Women exhibition. (https://www.parliament.uk/209-women) And she was also featured ‘The Saluki’ the official magazine of The Saluki/Gazelle Hound Club UK, the oldest Saluki Club in the World.

 

How does your dog enhance your day to day life?

She is always there to greet me at the end of a long day at work.

 

What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

I think Lucy's Law is really important, there are many dogs that are abused when they are used in backstreet breeding and very poorly puppy’s being born. I’m really glad that the puppy farm ban has been confirmed.

 

How do you ensure you are a responsible dog owner?

She is microchipped. I always make sure she has access to water throughout the day. When I am at work I make sure there is someone to look after her during the day and take her on walks. Plenty of exercise and love!

 

Why should your dog be crowned Westminster Dog of the Year 2019?

You’ll know it when you meet me!
