Top pooch in facelift row

LONDON (Reuters) - The canine winner of the world's biggest dog show may be stripped of its title after being accused of having a secret facelift, the Times has reported.

Danny, the Pekingese who beat 20,000 contestants to be crowned Supreme Champion at the renowned Crufts show earlier this month, faces an investigation into the allegations, Monday's paper said.

Nips and tucks are banned under the show's strict rules and winners found to have gone under the knife can be stripped of their title, the event's organisers, the Kennel Club, told the paper.

But three-year-old Danny's owners firmly denied the charges, saying they were the work of jealous rivals in the fiercely competitive world of dog shows.

"It is all just jealousy," Albert Easdon, who displayed Danny at the show with Philip Martin, told the Times. "They can't just say 'it's a lovely dog'."
