Pet of the week



First published in

OUR pet of the week is a bit of a celebrity.

Sue Slack, from Westleigh, sent in this picture of five-year-old shorkie (Shih-tzu and Yorkshire terrier cross) Alfie.

Alfie has appeared on stage as Toto in the Turnpike Community Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz.

Sue said: “Alfie really took to the stage, he loves the attention and is so well-behaved when he’s up there.

“Since we got him he has been devoted to our daughter Kim, who was diagnosed with alopecia five years ago.

“He always knows when she is going through a rough patch and doesn’t leave her side.”
