After almost 700 entries, our King of the Couch has been crowned! We asked you to send in snaps of your sofa-hogging pets and we’ve finally found our winner. Meet your King, Eddie – the adorable 11-month-old Dalmatian puppy from Pontefract.
Despite his young age, Eddie isn’t prepared to share the sofa (or his crown) with anybody. Eddie fought off tough competition from other couch surfing pooches, cats and even one incredibly lazy lizard to win the title.
His owner, Laura Dixon, was thrilled about winning the competition. Laura, her partner James, and Eddie have won a stay at the pet-friendly Beck Hall Hotel in Yorkshire, as well as a professional pet photoshoot at Prodoto Photographic Studios and a £50 Pets at Home voucher.
Laura revealed that Eddie regularly stakes his claim on their sofa, and it definitely wasn’t a one-time thing for the camera. “He usually has one side of the corner sofa and we have to sit on the other side to make way for him. He does get what he want,” she admitted, “because you can’t refuse anything to that little face.” We don’t think we could resist Eddie’s cute face either, or any of our lovable entries’ faces in fact!
So many of your pets seem to have a tendency for hogging the sofa and we’ve absolutely loved looking through the photos. Take a look at our top 10 finalists below, or click here to view all of the entries to the King of the Couch competition.
|We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered the competition. We received so many fantastic photos, it was definitely a difficult process to crown just one King of the Couch. But here’s to Eddie – long live the King!|
