Glory is the bionic dog with a tale that's bound to make to you smile.
A year ago we told you about her, a street dog from Romania who'd had three paws amputated.
Well, now, she's been fitted with prosthetic legs and appears to be enjoying her new life in the Cumbrian town of Brampton. Katie Hunter reports:
Last year we met Glory, a Romanian street dog who had three paws amputated.
She's now been adopted by a family in Brampton who raised more than £3,000 for prosthetic legs to give Glory a new lease of life.

Glory's learning to walk and run on her new prosthetic limbs a year after being adopted by a Cumbrian family.
When Vanessa Bamkin from Brampton saw a photo of Glory on Facebook she decided to take action.
Glory was a street dog in Romania who had three paws amputated and could hardly walk.
Vanessa arranged for her to be moved to Cumbria before raising more than £3,000 to pay for three new prosthetic limbs.

Testing is taking place in cattle herds across the Brampton area of north Cumbria after a confirmed case of Bovine TB.
Farmers are being urged to double check the source of cattle they bring into the county to prevent the number of cases increasing.
A case of Bovine TB has been confirmed in the Brampton area of north Cumbria.
Movement restrictions have been placed on cattle at the affected farm.
Cumbria remain a low risk area for Bovine TB but farmers are being urged to take extra precautions in light of this new case.
Katie Hunter reports:
A spokesman for the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) - the department of DEFRA that deals with cases linked to bovine TB - told ITV Border what is being done surrounding the current outbreak.
“Cumbria is a low risk area for bovine TB. Each year there are a small number of bovine TB incidents in the county, typically due to infection being inadvertently carried in cattle bought from herds in a high risk area. AHVLA has also found no evidence of TB infection in local wildlife.
“Bovine TB can have a devastating effect on farm businesses, which is why there are strict measures to control it. In low risk areas such as Cumbria, herds within a three kilometre radius of a TB incident are placed on more regular testing to reduce the risk of infection.”
Geltsdale Brewery, which has been based at Townfoot Industrial Estate in Brampton since last year, has announced that it has gone into administration.
