After a hard day in the office, a lot of people may feel like they've been worked like a dog - but for one pet owner in Dumfries, taking her dog to work is part of her normal routine.
However, it's no dogs life as Allana Hamilton's pet is now in the finals of a national competition.

Dumfries pooch in finals of national competition
Allana Hamilton, owner of Badger, said: "Badger cheers everyone up at work! He might look small and cute but he is actually quite a lot of work- certainly no lap dog anyway. "If he wins 'Britain's top pet' then I'll donate the money to Huskies in Need, who rescue abandoned huskies and rehome them."

A four-year-old Alaskan Klee Kai from Dumfries is in the final of a competition to find Britain's 'top office dog'.
'Badger', named after his distinguished similarities to the omnivore, has already been named as Scotland's best pet.
His 29-year-old owner, Allana Hamilton, only brought Badger in to work during his recovery from a viscous attack when he was a puppy.
He suffered a broken leg, and her boss at Dundas Chemical Company allowed her to bring the poorly pooch in to work.
Badger soon became an office regular and now joins Allana on her desk most days.
He's currently lying second in the competition which closes on Sunday.

If Badger wins, Allana plans on donating the money to the 'Huskies in Need' charity.
