He’s something of a celebrity in the dog world and here corgi Winny is treated to a view over The O2 ahead of the Eukanuba Discover Dogs show.

Pooch-lovers will recognise Winny, short for Winston, from his Instagram page where he boasts more than 10,000 followers.

Snaps of the popular pet are regularly posted to the picture sharing social media platform by his owner and professional photographer Rachel Oates.

The diminutive dog caught a ride on the Emirates Air Line cable car from Newham’s Royal Docks to mark the countdown to the dog show, which takes place at the ExCeL Arena, Royal Victoria Dock, on October 17 and 18.

The cute canine will be on hand to greet visitors at the show after The Kennel Club noted a rise in the popularity of certain dog breeds in line with their popularity on Instagram.
