Pet of the week: Cute Polly Anna's not an early riser
RITA and Bill Savage have owned gorgeous Shoodle Polly Anna since she was just eight weeks old.
The two-year-old is the Frome Standard Pet of the Week and we are very happy to crown her so.
Mrs Savage said: "We saw her advertised as being the last of a litter of six shoodles.
"The owner explained that her Shih-Tzu bitch was romanced quite unexpectedly by a Toy Poodle living two doors away.

"Because four of her siblings were like their Shih-Tzu mother they were snapped up by the owner's family.
"The other black puppy was a male and was selected before Polly Anna.
"Thus leaving her as the last (and seemingly unwanted) puppy.
"She is very intelligent and can select over six of her favourite toys by name.
"Within our family and neighbourhood she has many doggie friends which include much larger dogs like golden retrievers, bull mastiff cross and an enormous black Newfoundland.
"She loves people and gets along fine with children, even allowing them to share her toys.
"Polly Anna is very lazy in the morning and I have photographs of her laying in bed as we try to get her up."
Polly Anna is the couple's tenth dog and can now look forward to some lovely treats courtesy of our sponsors, Not Just Pets, in the Kingsway Precinct.
