Reigning Champion Cloud – Top of the Pups 2020


Cloud, a young Greengrass Lurcher from Galway, was chosen to be Petmania Puppy of the Year 2020. Cloud was named top-dog having been chosen from 1200 adorable puppies from all over the country. Cloud’s proud human Daithí Maguire said: 

“Cloud is an absolutely stunning puppy and I was so thrilled to have her win the Puppy of the Year competition last year. She received 12-months of free food, got regularly pampered by the dog groomers in Petmania Galway, took part in her very own professional photo shoot, and even treated me to a fantastic dog-friendly staycation!! Petmania also sent her numerous surprise packages throughout the year with lots of toys and treats! I would encourage anyone with a new puppy to enter the competition – we had a really fun year!”
