Jimmy the cocker King Charles cross

Jimmy is a 12-year-old cocker King Charles cross who loves to chase squirrels in the garden.

His family brought him when he was just eight-weeks-old, although he still acts like a pup he does forget he can’t run as fast as he used to!

Jimmy's family say he listens like a human when you're talking to him and if you give him a piece of ham, he will literally do anything.

His favourite toy is his honky pig and every time his owners buy him a new one he bites the honker and stuffing out of them without fail.

Joe is an 11-year-old border collie who loves football and chilling in the garden, no matter what the weather.

Fluffy and full of love, Joe brings a smile to everyone he meets, enjoying pets from strangers and family.

Due to his old age, Joe was recently diagnosed with diabetes, sadly one of his symptoms included him becoming blind.

However, this hasn't stopped the pooch from playing his favourite games.

Joe is very smart and knows all of his toys by name and despite his poor eyesight he is still a master at fetch and is able to retrieve his teddies with no problem.

The collie is obsessed with helicopters and despite not being able to see them he looks to the sky and barks when one flies overhead.

His owner jokes that he probably wouldn't know what to do with himself if he caught one!

Joe loves the outside and although he has his creature comforts indoors he'd rather sit in the garden all day hiding under his owners' plants in a massive hole he's dug.

He will be turning 12 in December and is looking forward to many Christmas treats.
