It’s safe to say that three-year-old cocker spaniel Lola has been blessed with some incredible locks. In fact, her gorgeous blonde hair is so breathtaking that many strangers frequently ask her owner, Rebecca Dobson, if the canine is wearing a wig.

The 22-year-old says: ‘Because the hair on her head is such a different colour to the hair on her body, people immediately assume it’s fake.

‘They either think she is wearing a wig or that we have been dying it blonde, which I find really funny.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Dogs have a sense of time. It's been proven that they know the difference between a hour and five. If conditioned to, they can predict future events, such as regular walk times.

‘They’re so shocked when we tell them it’s completely natural because of how beautiful it is.’

Rebecca adds that because Lola’s hair is the ‘perfect blonde,’ she’s even had people taking pictures of her pooch so they can show a hairdresser the exact colour they want.

But Lola’s hair hasn’t always looked this way.

When she was a puppy, the canine just had light fluff all over her body – but it proceeded to get longer and blonder as she got older.

Rebecca says: ‘We never expected her to look how she does now.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), pet owners in the United States spent $60.28 billion on their furry friends in 2015. That number is expected to rise by more than $2 billion in 2016.

‘But when I first noticed how long her hair was getting I was so excited to start styling it and using accessories.

‘I love playing about with her hair and she loves me doing it too.’

Thankfully, sweet Lola can’t get enough of the attention.

‘She laps it up when people are fussing over her,’ adds Rebecca.

‘She loves getting attention from humans more than she does from other dogs – so when people stop and fuss her about her hair, she is at her happiest.

‘Her tail never stops wagging.’

On hot summer days, walk your dogs before 9 a.m. or after 8 p.m. — or walk them only in shady or grassy/dirt areas.

Rebecca adds that her pampered pooch now even has her own nickname, Lady Lola, and enjoys the finer things in life.

‘She loves having her hair blow-dried and she also enjoys a cup of tea and scrambled egg on a Sunday morning,’ the 22-year-old owner adds.

‘She enjoys a Sunday roast with us, too.

‘Lola is the cuddliest dog in the world and is always by my side.’
