THERE is a double celebration for Jack Russell Riley, who is not only our pet of the week but also celebrated his first birthday on Saturday.

Owner Paul Sawin, of Old Coach Road, Runcorn, said: “He started life off badly with four owners when we got him at 15 weeks, since then he has become my girlfriend’s favourite boy – which I’m told on a daily basis to make me jealous!”
