A handsome bassett hound from Felixstowe has been crowned the first winner of a creative canine competition.

One-year-old Enzo and owner Kelly Bowen won week one of the #LetSleepingDogsLie contest, organised ahead of Suffolk Dog Day, which encourages dog lovers to post pictures of their sleeping pets on social media.

Judges are searching for cute snapshots of snoozing pooches, the best of which will be chosen to win a Suffolk Dog Day prize bundle.

The competition aims to raise awareness of the vulnerable people which Suffolk Dog Day is hoping to support.

The event, now in its 11th year, will be held at Helmingham Hall on Sunday, July 29 and is being organised by the Suffolk Community Foundation.
