What I do all day: I do get walks when my Dad isn’t working, and locals always pop in and take me out for a walkie, but generally I sit in the window, or on my favourite chair by the fire. Most people like me and come and say hello, which I love. I also like children and am very good with infants and kids.

Why I love my home: It's a great British Country Inn, fantastic locals and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. I get to meet lots of four legged friends too which is great and now we have the Doggy Beer, we can all have a beer and share some doggy gossip!
