They’re friends, they’re guides, they help saves lives and they’re there when we’re feeling down – there are plenty of reasons to love dogs and today is all about our furry companions. National Dog Day is here and, ahead of the annual celebration of canines everywhere, we asked you to send us pictures of your pampered pooches. You responded in droves, with well over 400 pictures sent to us. Too many, unfortunately, to fit in one gallery of adorable photos but we’ve taken 75 at random and put them in the video above. If your dog’s name is Archie, Colin, Maggie, Nala, Pixie, Prince, Teddy, Willow or Winston there’s a chance he or she is in there! But every pooch is precious so you’ll find every single one of your pictures in the comments on the Facebook post we’ve embedded on this page.

0 Have your say The Saturday Interview is about to embarrass itself once more and again this concerns pleasures of the flesh. The last time was when I asked John Lambie, RIP, about his late-flowering passion for creating works of erotic art. “My whit?” he said, confirming you shouldn’t believe all you read on Wikipedia. Now I’m quizzing Archie Macpherson about the Bad Sex Awards and he’s probably thinking the same as Lambie: who is this berk and whatever happened to good, old-fashioned, proper research?

What is true is that the man we associate with one of the cold, hard facts of Scottish life – and they don’t come much colder than the national football team’s failure to qualify for World Cups anymore – has dabbled in the creative stuff. Macpherson’s novel Silent Thunder was published in 2014, which … [Read more...] about Interview: Archie Macpherson on his World Cup adventures

Why not adopt one of these adorable dogs from Mrs Murray’s Cat and Dog Home. Pebbles Pebbles is a gorgeous Rotti who is about four to five years old. She needs a new home with no other animals or children. She will need an owner who has experience of the breed, has time and patience to continue her training as well as an understanding vet. A Vet Reference will be required from any potential new owners. Winston There’s nothing this cheeky chap likes better than snoozing in a comfy bed, especially if there is a blanket on top that he can burrow under!

Ruby Mae melted hearts with her latest Instagram snap of herself with a baby on Instagram, marking a change from her usual fashion and beauty posts. The 22-year-old girlfriend of Dele Alli shot the camera her rarely-seen pearly whites as she cradled her friend's newborn son Archie in a living room. The rising star, who is signed to Boss Model Management in Manchester, still manages to look glamorous in her casual gear of a monochrome Givenchy T-shirt and Balenciaga baseball cap with a pair of distressed blue jeans. Despite toning down her hair and makeup for the baby visit, she still wears a flick of eyeliner with foundation and bronzer in the shot. She captioned the precious post: "snuggles with Archie," and fans have gone wild.
