To mark International Dog Day on August 26, just for a bit of fun and via our social media channels we asked readers for photos of their pooches.

Siobhan Purcell from Tarbert sent us these photos of Brochan the ‘bullweiler’ – a cross between a rottweiler and bulldog.

As well as being a big canine character and part of the family, Siobhan explained that Brochan also serves as a PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) support dog for her partner Ali Duff – aka The Hairy Piper.

‘Brochan’s his rock,’ said Siobhan. ‘She makes him laugh when he’s down, supports him in his darkest moments and she’s the happiest dog ever – at her happiest when bouncing about in the waters of Argyll.’

From Ardrishaig, Maggie Crow sent in a photograph of her beautiful Romanian rescue dog, Bertha, enjoying the sun.
