Amber takes starring role in calendar

The Roche family from Clonmel always knew that their dog Amber was something of a star – and now she has confirmed that with her inclusion in Somerset-based pet food company James Wellbeloved’s calendar for 2013.

The Roche family from Clonmel always knew that their dog Amber was something of a star – and now she has confirmed that with her inclusion in Somerset-based pet food company James Wellbeloved’s calendar for 2013.

Amber is an 11 month-old Bernese Mountain dog and features as the main March picture.

Her photo was submitted for the calendar competition by 13 year-old Anna Roche, who loves photography almost as much as the dog.

“I’m delighted that Amber has won this photographic competition. I love taking lots of photos of Amber, and as well as being gorgeous she is a very special member of our family.”

The family has another bitch, Skye, a foster puppy for Autism Assistance, and Anna writes a blog on her training for the charity.

The calendar is now available while stocks last from participating pet shops all over the UK and Ireland and is free with the purchase of any 1.5kg-4kg bag of James Wellbeloved dog, cat or ferret food.
