The adorable Border Collie (below) stole the hearts of all at Victorian Plumbing HQ. Proud owner, Lisa, managed to catch the puppy looking contemplative after a good long soak.

To celebrate National Dog Day this August bank holiday, we challenged you to send in candid shots of your canine companions enjoying baths after a woof day.

You did not disappoint.

Since the competition’s announcement, we’ve been inundated with dozens of dog snaps on social media. From Shih Tzus wrapped in towels to Cockapoos in shower caps, the results were as cute (and funny) as you might expect.

Freyja emerged as our unanimous champion, winning Lisa a £250 VP voucher in the process. The decision, however, was not an easy one to make. With so many pawfect runners up we just had to take this opportunity to introduce you to some of our favourites.

The Model Dogs

Much to the delight of their owners, these guys had a penchant for posing.
