Alfie’s top dog after votes are counted

Winner: Alfie
Winner: Alfie

Lovable Alfie proved to be top dog when the votes were counted in our Pets Win Prizes competition.

He just edged out some feline opposition from runner-up, cat Alex, while joint third were Alfie’s fellow canines Jack and Freddie.

Alfie is owned by Sophie Morley, of Mount Avenue, Norton Tower, Halifax.

This year helping us track down the cutest cat, hairiest hound or funkiest fish were West Mount Vets, which has surgeries in Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Mytholomroyd, as well as Halifax and Huddersfield.

West Mount Vets supported the Todmorden News and Hebden Bridge Times competition and have provided voucher prizes for the top three, with the winner getting a £100 voucher.

So it’s well done to Alfie and congratulations too to the other finalists, who have given our readers some extra enjoyment this summer.

Our pets bring us a lot of pleasure and their owners have kindly put them in the spotlight over the last two months.

Our thanks go to all who have taken part and to West Mount Vets for their generous contribution in providing the prizes.
