A dog groomer’s romantic Italian wedding was the inspiration for an unusual piece of canine body art.

Daniela Forshaw’s miniature poodle, Venice, sported a gondola, ice cream and rainbow coloured fur for the recent English Groomers Challenge 2014.

Mrs Forshaw, of Beauchamps, Burnham, was inspired by her own wedding, held in Venice.

She said: “Shapes coloured and cut into the design include a Venetian mask and gown, the Rialto Bridge, a gondola, ice cream and Italian flag, with a firework display tail which had party poppers included in the tail, which I let off over the judge.”

Her eye-popping design secured her second place in the Novice Creative Stylist of the Year category.

And here is me feeling guilty when I put a coat on my dog when it's tipping it down with rain.....only to keep him a little bit drier and to save me half hour drying him! Perhaps that's not so bad after all?
