OUR pet of the week is 18-month-old long haired chihuahua Ted whose owner Jessica Lee, a masters student from Leigh, sent in this picture.

She said: “Ted loves to be picked up and cuddled and attacks you with kisses. He really is the sweetest thing.

“He is that small he loves to sit on your shoulder while you’re watching television on the couch and always wants to sit in front of my laptop when I am trying to do my work.”
