We love sharing your pets and their shenanigans with the local community, so please get in touch if you want your pet to feature online and in print.

Owner and play buddy Clare Small said: "I love BB because she is very unique. She communicates with me via squeaking and sits on her wheel waiting for me to take her out to play."

Lilly the Shih Tzu enjoys spending time in the garden with her toys.

Mr Tank, a 15-month-old American Pocket Bully, is most happy when he's being cuddled, according to owner Amy Searle.

Cuddling seems to be a popular pastime amongst your pets as French Bulldogs Madge and Coco love to play and give "great" cuddles.

We also say hello to Woody the Schnoodle from Bournemouth who is a fan of stealing and chewing pens, and Echo the Pondenco.
