Albie the Alaskan shepherd
Albie is an all white, Alaskan shepherd, who is three in December.
His owners explained Albie was never intended to be a lockdown puppy but they are so thankful he came into their lives when he did because without him, lockdown would’ve been a lot more boring!
They say Albie is the most happy, smiley, gentle and fluffiest dog you will come across.
No matter how you’re feeling, he will always be able to put a smile back on your face.
His owners said he is such a playful and cheeky boy, that no moment is ever dull when Albie is around.
Albie's owners said: "We have had our moments where he has pushed his limits to see how cheeky he can be.
"These include a time where I had just got a brand new limited edition pair of Nike trainers, I absolutely adored them but it seemed Albie did as well.
"During the night, he managed to find said trainers and chew the back of them off but annoyingly it was only one trainer he seemed to enjoy.
"Another time, I had just been gifted a lovely designer purse for my birthday and it was something I had wanted for so long.
"My partner asked me to get something out my purse, but when I had gone to find it, it was gone.
"After a few minutes of trying to figure out where it was, we noticed that a certain fluffy dog was running around the garden with a very proud face on him, whilst holding the purse in his mouth!
"Luckily, this one didn’t came back chewed and we had got it back intact.
"Probably the most traumatic but now funniest one to us, is the time we had got a call from my partner's dad who was looking after him for the day to say he couldn’t find Albie.
"We were all very panicked and searching the streets for him, only to have the postman come knocking on the door with Albie.
"He had taken himself out of the house (we still do not know how), and walked himself up to the local kebab shop!!
"Unfortunately for him, it was far too early for him to grab a chicken wrap but he did seem to be proud of himself for the trip."
These are just a few stories shared by Albie's owners who love the fluffy white bear so much.
Chip the cat
Chip is a one-year-old cat.
The energetic lad has an odd sleeping habit as he loves nothing more than sleeping in his family's sink or bath.

His owners say he also enjoys slotting himself into places he doesn't fit!
Hebe and Phoebe the cats
Hebe and Phoebe are four-year-old cats that are surprisingly sisters, although Hebe is much larger.
Their owners says they just love each other and enjoy cuddles together when they are not tearing around the house playing and hiding.

He is one of a litter of 10 and loves cheese.

However, he will abandon them all if there’s an unworn slipper nearby.
Felix has an unbelievable ability to spread out and occupy most of the sofa.

Humphrey the aplaca with his pals, Woody, Ernie and Bailey
Humphrey the alpaca and his pals, Woody, Ernie and Bailey are about nine and 10 years old.
They like to 'bong' around the paddock at dusk chasing each other and Woody, the brown one, jumps in the air with excitement when it is dinner time!
Bailey always puts his head in the bucket first before the food is dished out so he gets extra mouthfuls and Woody steals a mouthful of food from each dinner tray before he gets to his own!
Humphrey is always in line for a carrot first and all of them will do anything for a pear or a runner bean.
Harry the hamster
Harry is a one-year-old hamster.
The furry creature loves the occasional fresh vegetable and enjoys burying himself in his cage under his bedding.
Harry always wants to play in his ball and can't wait for pets from his owners.
