I am a complete animal lover, and dogs are top of the list in terms of my favourite pets. This is Murphy, who belongs to my sister. Murphy's mother was a lovely dog called Chloe, who was given to me on my 10th birthday. Sadly she died a couple of years ago, but she did make the impressive age of 17 so we did get a lot of time with her. Murphy has a hugely expressive face, sometimes his emotions seem entirely human. This shows him in 'hunt mode', which, as a terrier living in Gloucestershire, is a mode that he is in quite a lot of the time.
