A NEW Addington pet owner has scooped first prize – for looking like her dog.
Emma Morris picked up the Most Like Owner award at the Scruffs Companion Dog Show in Tunbridge Wells at the weekend.
Miss Morris, a professional dog groomer, said while she loves all her seven dogs the same, Doodles was her first and remains the one closest to her heart.
"When I got Doodles it was just me and him," she said.
"At that point my mum had just moved to France so he was like my new little housemate.
"He adores me and looks up to me.
"He will do anything to please his master."
Doodles also won Scruffiest Dog and Best Trained Dog (with an adult handler) at the dog show, which took place on Sunday at Honnington Farm Gardens.
Miss Morris, 24, credits her dogs – four cross-breeds, two poodles and a Staffordshire bull terrier – with helping her come out of herself after she was bullied at school.
She said: "I find it very hard to mingle with people because I was bullied when I was younger.
"When I got Doodles I became a nicer person and I found a lot of confidence. They are my friends – they are everything."
She added: "My dogs were there to help me through my partner leaving.
"It's literally just me and the dogs now."
