Diesel chosen as Tunbridge Wells’ Most Deserving Dog
New dog food brand McAdams recently launched a search in the Tunbridge Wells area to find a very special canine to be the recipient of its ‘Most Deserving Dog’ award. The local community was invited to nominate a special pooch that had gone above and beyond simply being man’s best friend.

Six year old Black Labrador, Diesel was chosen as the lucky winner of Tunbridge Wells’ Most Deserving Dog award. As a registered Pets as Therapy (PAT) dog, she visits two nursing homes each week with owner, Alan Timms, and sees patients in the day centre and wards at Hospice in the Weald at Pembury – giving love and affection to those in care.

Diesel, a busy girl, also visits the pupils at Brenchley and Matfield infants school as a reading dog – enabling children to focus on their reading and concentration in a fun way. On top of all of her weekly activities, Diesel still finds time to have fun with her owners, Julie and Alan Timms.

Diesel has won a McAdams food hamper and dog toys as well as a grooming session, courtesy of local dog parlour, Dolly Dogs Grooming Studio.

Julie Timms, owner of Diesel, commented: “I am thrilled that Diesel was chosen as Tunbridge Wells’ Most Deserving Dog. She is an absolute delight to everyone who meets her and she brightens up so many people’s days just by being her caring and affectionate self.”

Neil McAdam, creator of McAdams Pet Foods, commented: “Diesel is a very special dog whose hard work with the community has made her a worthy winner for the ‘Most Deserving Dog’ award. She has certainly gone above and beyond and we’re really happy to have the opportunity to treat her and give her the recognition she deserves.”

Natalie Lucas, owner of Dolly Dogs Grooming Studio, adds: “Diesel was an absolute star when she was having her grooming treat, very relaxed and happy. She even had a lovely play with our new rescued Lurcher! We’re really pleased to have been involved with the McAdams Deserving Dog award and treating Diesel to a special pampering session.”
