CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

We are dog-sitting at the moment. Our friends have gone to Tenerife for some late summer sun, so we’re looking after their 10-month-old puppy, Jake.

He’s a cross between a collie and a spaniel. He’s madder than Zebedee and seems to be powered by 100 Duracell batteries!

Harvey, our golden retriever, is fantastic with him. He tolerates his excitement, but tells him off when he’s had enough.

But Ruby, our Jack Russell, is having none of it. She nags him all the time and nips his paws. This little pocket rocket takes no prisoners.

She stands guard over me whilst Jake tries to do things to my leg. When his owners return, we’ll need a round-the-world cruise to recover!
