Pet of the Week: Pennie and Poppie

Pennie and Poppie
Pennie and Poppie

Pennie (3) and Poppie (1) live with their owners, the Smith family, in Bainsford.

Couple Diane and Chris and their three children Sophie (15) and Kris and Kieran (14) love their friendly pets.

Diane said: “I’ve wanted a dog for years, and I badgered my husband for a long time, and he only wanted West Highland Terriers because he had grown up with them.

“We got Pennie and later we got Poppie. We weren’t sure how they were going to get one together because Pennie was a bit spoiled, but they are the best of friends.

“I’d recommend West Highland Terriers to anyone as a pet, they are great dogs and are really well behaved.

“They are very loyal and very much part of the family.

“I really think dogs bring a family together.”
