A PET pooch has won over the hearts of judges to be crowned as Suffolk’s Cutest Pet.
Pepsi, a black Labrador who lives with her owners in Ipswich, competed in the competition as part of National Pet Month 2010.
At only six months old, Pepsi’s mischievous photo entry sealed her the title as winner of the Suffolk’s Cutest Pet competition, which was organised by the Orwell Vet Group and Perfect Pet Care.
Entered into the competition by 14-year-old owner Mollie Gascoigne, the pup beat off competition from cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets from across the county.
Miss Gascoigne said that she was delighted Pepsi had been selected.The pair won a year’s supply of worm and flea treatment, along with a selection of food and toys.

“It just shows that Suffolk is full of pet lovers and it made it very hard for the judges to choose the final winner.
