To celebrate National Dog Week (18th to 25th September 2022), natural dog food retailer, Dragonfly Products, has crowned the nation’s ‘sleepiest’ dog following a national photo competition.
The Huddersfield-based dog food company asked Brits to submit photos of their four-legged friends getting a good old kip and their panel of judges chose the pups who looked the cutest or funniest whilst having a nap to take away the winners medal.
In total, Dragonfly received over 250 entries from which one winner and two runners-up were chosen. With so many adorable dogs to choose from, this was no easy task!
Ringo, a three-year-old Cockapoo from Manchester, took the top spot for the UK’s sleepiest dog and scooped the generous prize of a year’s supply of Dragonfly’s new Gourmet dry dog food range.
Caroline, Ringo’s mum, described the northern pup as “an absolute big sack of idiot” after explaining that this (see image above) is how he likes to sleep after a long day. Despite his silly tendencies, Caroline says she “loves him so much”.
The first runner-up was 18-month-old Miniature Dachshund, Oskar, from London. Owner Mareen shared that the half German half English pup loves days out in the park and playing with friends. If this is Oskar’s favourite hobby, it’s no surprise he likes a good sleep!”
Smudge, a 12-year-old Border Collie from Kent, was named the second runner-up. According to his owner Jeanette, Smudge still acts like he’s four, and she says he’s loyal, energetic, and runs like the wind.
Other adorable pooches that made it into Dragonfly’s top ten shortlist include Bella, Jasper, Roco, Tessa, Mabel, Rafa, and Winnie.
Laura Lambert, owner of Dragonfly Products, commented on the sleepiest pup competition: “Launching this competition was so exciting for the team at Dragonfly, and when we started to get flooded with entries, we knew that choosing a winner and two runners-up would be difficult.
“After careful consideration and hours of contemplation, we finally decided on Ringo as the winner and Oskar and Smudge as the two runners-up. All three of these dogs embody the cheeky and characterful personality traits that we love so much at Dragonfly and we think they’re really deserving of their prizes.
“We’re looking forward to working with Ringo’s owner, Caroline, to select the best year’s worth of Gourmet food for her pup. Oskar and Smudge have also won vouchers to spend on the Dragonfly Products website – have fun browsing, boys!
“We all know dogs love a snooze after a good feed, so keep the photos coming, we want to see your best snaps of your furry friends snoozing after they’ve tucked into their favourite meal!”
