Dressed to the K9s has written to Her Majesty The Queen urging her to enter one (if not all) of her dogs into a dog fancy dress competition.

Dressed to the K9s is an annual competition raising awareness for the dog rescue organisation Every Chance Rescue (ECR). Each year dog lovers up and down the country dress their dogs in comedic attire and send photos off in the hope they will not only win the coveted prizes, but also be crowned best Dressed to the K9s that year! Also, each year a celebrity sits on the final judging panel. This year it will be ‘Comedy’ Dave Vitty & Dominic Byrne from Chris Moyles Radio 1 breakfast show.

This year, Walk the Dog™ has written to HRH inviting her to enter her own pooches. Hanne Grice, founder of Walk the Dog™ and creator of Dressed to the K9s said in her letter to the Queen: “Your Royal Highness, we thought in the busy run up to the royal wedding you might welcome a light hearted distraction and so am sending you the details of a fun pooch related competition. In the hope of offering some inspiration, I am also including a photo of your very own dressed to the K9s HRH mini schnauser.

Walk the Dog™ also had to point out in its letter that being Her Majesty The Queen would not mean an automatic win or special treatment.

Last years winner was a Bichon Frise from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, who entered as ‘Barbara Cartland.
