MEET Jackson the Yazga Dandie Dinmont Terrier—he’s top dog’ on the Isle of Dogs!

And that’s his master he’s with in a London telephone box on Saturday.

Looks a bit like him, doesn’t he?

The pair couldn’t wait to ring home to tell the family they won Best in Show at the Kennel Club’s 150th anniversary dog show—held naturally at the Isle of Dogs.

DOUBLE TOP

But it was a double top for the top dog who also took the title of Most Like His Owner with a little help from his master Paul Keevil.

The two went home to Redhill in Surrey grinning like Cheshire cats.

But East London’s own mutts still reigned supreme in the fun side of the century-and-a-half celebrations.

Burnsfield, a Jack Russell from Poplar, won the glossiest coat’ contest, while Willow, a Rottweiler from Canning Town, took the waggiest tail’ title.
