Boxer dog Sam and lab/staffy Lily came into owner Gayle Paterson’s life separately, but now she cannot imagine them being apart.

Nine-year-old Sam originally belonged to Gayle’s fiancé David Orr, but she soon became a fixture in Gayle’s Redding home. Then Lily, born on New Year’s Day 2014, came along on Valentine’s Day - a present from David to Gayle. “We were worried Sam would be a bit wary of Lily,” said Gayle. “But he looks after and is very protective of her.” Young Lily is a quick learner and has picked up a few clever moves from wily old Sam. Gayle said: “Sam has one of those faces that looks sad all the time. He’ll pull that face and put his head on the bed looking to get up - now Lily copies him, putting her head on the bed and making the same face.”
