Jake, who lives with owners Kirsty and Ian Old in Ipswich, was the winner of our Christmas pet competition, Santa Paws.

“He loves being dressed up and I already had a photo of him in a Christmas hat so sent it in,” said Mrs Old.

We were inundated with entries and chose Jake as our star pet.

However, he had to delay a visit from our photographers because of a minor operation to remove a mass from the bridge of his nose.

Mrs Old said: “The stitches are out now and he does have a little scar.”

She doesn’t, however, think it will affect his looks. “Everyone always says how pretty he is,” she said

She describes Jake as a lovable, cuddly 10-year-old, and explained that she inherited him eight years ago from her late aunt.
