Springer spaniel is a true Star
HERE is the latest's pet of the week, Star, who was sent in by her owner, Valerie Butland.
Star is a springer spaniel and a lovely natured dog, who loves to play ball.
Last year she gave birth to nine beautiful puppies.
Mrs Butland said: "Three days after the puppies were born Star kept scratching me and trying to get my attention by running to me then back to the puppies.

"I noticed they were all fairly sleepy. I took Star and the pups to my vets who said that Star just didn't have enough milk to feed them.
"We were only just in time to save them and luckily after a few injections to rehydrate the pups followed by me hand rearing them and Star keeping watch over everything, they all survived and went to fantastic homes.
"On September 7 they will all be one year old.
"Star was a perfect mummy and has since been reunited with some of her pups and is still a loving mummy.
"Star by name and by nature."
