TV’s Lewis the Dulux Dog has made a guest appearance at MKM’s branch in Anlaby, Hull.
The iconic Old English Sheepdog popped by the MKM Building Supplies’ branch to celebrate the unveiling of a new Dulux Trade Paint Mixer. The celebrity pooch, famed for his long hair, looked particularly fetching as he posed for fans, many of whom had travelled especially to see him.
The event was held on the final day of the school holidays. Along with face painting for the kids, Lewis was the star attraction. Turnout for the famous canine was outstanding, with selfies being the order of the day.
Since making his first appearance in a 1961 black-and-white television advert, the Dulux Dog has become an instantly-recognisable, celebrated figure on British TV sets. Although there have been several Dulux dogs, all are selected from a closely-related pedigree breed, and most have won ‘Best in Show’ prizes at dog competitions as well as made cameo TV appearances.
Glenn Paddison, Branch Director at MKM Anlaby, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to welcome such an historic (and well-behaved!) figure to the branch.
“After a fair few selfies, it’s safe to say that everyone has had a great time, particularly the kids! The new trade paint mixer is another valuable asset for MKM Anlaby’s portfolio of products.”
