Tiny pooch comes out on top after voting gets heated
Benji the Terrier has won Time Out Dubai’s cutest pet poll, following two weeks of ferocious voting. The competition came about after readers were asked to nominate their pets as ‘Dubai’s cutest’ for a feature to mark the annual Dubai Pet Show. What followed was a voting campaign that spread far and wide, beyond the shores of the UAE as devoted owners began Facebook campaigns begging friends and family around the world to vote for their beloved furry friends. Benji’s owner, Dana Shaheen, was one such campaigner. Her determination paid off, and Benji won the competition and prize, a full groom, item of fashion clothing, a bag of pet food and a wash, courtesy of Pets in the City. Whether Benji will return to attempt to bag the title again next year is unknown, as his owner was unavailable to comment on his behalf.
