STUNNING Skye the labrador has won The Queensland Times Pimp Your Pet competition.

A photograph of the Deebing Heights family pet in a simple tutu charmed the QT judging panel, and won Skye the title of the most pimping pet in Ipswich.

Owner Lisa Roper was touched that Skye had won the $500 grand prize.

"I just started portrait photography and I thought photographing Skye would be good practise," Ms Roper said.

"She doesn't seem to mind dressing up, the kids love

wearing costumes themselves and Skye doesn't mind getting involved."

Ms Roper said the eight-year-old labrador was a loving pet.

"Skye's had a few knee operations this year, so she mostly takes it easy but loves playing with the kids."

Ms Roper won a $250 Pet Barn gift card and $250 Harvey Norman gift card for her winning entry into the QT - The Queensland Times Facebook competition.

"I don't know how we'll spend it, but Skye loves treats so we'll have to get her some of them."
