OUR pet of the week is an ice cream thief.

Tania Maclean, from Leigh, sent in this picture of four-year-old British bulldog Dave.

She said: “He loves nothing more than walking and pinching ice cream.

“He’s a big softy of a lapdog that gives sloppy kisses and enjoys the occasional afternoon nap. He is my best friend in the whole world.”
