Romford MP’s pooch aims to be top dog in Westminster
PAWLITICAL pooch Buster, the seven year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier belonging to Romford MP Andrew Rosindell is hoping for a decisive Conservative victory when he enters the 18th Westminster Dog of the Year competition, next month.
Proud owner Andrew said: “Buster is a true patriot and has a big personality; as a previous winner he is hoping to regain his title and prove the irresistible charm of the Staffie!”
The competition, organised by the Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club, aims to highlight the unique relationship between man and dog and is open to all Parliamentary canaines.
Without a spin doctor or focus group in sight, the contest is more than just a beauty competition, but provides an opportunity for MPs to promote responsible dog ownership – poop scoop bag and all.
Judges include Clarissa Baldwin, chief executive of the Dogs Trust, and Caroline Kisko, secretary of the Kennel Club.
