A dog who was stabbed during a robbery is 'lucky to be alive' according to her vet.
13-year-old Sky was attacked at the garden centre where she lives with her owner, Peter Scott.
But her vet says things could have been very different:
– John Watson, Vet at Frame, Swift and Partners
"It appears to have been something that has been relatively blunt that's been stabbed in at the chest. I'm guessing she's been jumping up at somebody and they've stabbed in. We think probably a jemmy bar or a crow bar, we can't say for certain. It's not a knife would, it's something sharp enough but still fairly blunt.
"Fortunately there's a breast bone in front. If it had been either side, if she hadn't come up mid-line, it might have gone through into the chest cavity and that would have been it. She wouldn't have made it basically."

A professional athlete has been able to personally thank the paramedic who treated him after a cycling accident that broke his neck.
Three months after the crash that nearly killed him, Alistair Robinson met Andy Dalton from the Great North Air Ambulance. Matthew Taylor was there too, and has this report:
A professional triathlete whose neck was broken in an horrific crash in Cumbria has managed to give personal thanks to the paramedic who treated him.
Three months after the crash that nearly killed him, Alistair Robinson has met Andy Dalton from the Great North Air Ambulance at their Penrith base.
Alistair crashed into the back of a bus that had a puncture on the A66 between Penrith and Threlkeld in April.
The 30 year old from Dockray, near Penrith, fractured his skull, broke his neck and back, with nine of his vertebra broken.
– Alistair Robinson, professional triathlete
I remember about half a mile from where I crashed but I have no memory of the accident itself.
"I don't remember being put into the ambulance but I do remember being in the air ambulance, looking up and hearing the rotors. And I can recall a paramedic being sat next to me.
I was really, really scared. I've had a lot of accidents over the years. I've been a full time athlete for almost 10 years now. This was my first major accident. I was well aware that there were serious problems. They don't call the air ambulance out for fun."
– Alistair Robinson, professional triathlete
I can't thank them enough. I've often seen the air ambulance out over the Lake Distict but you never think that it'll be you that needs it.
I am going to raise money for them as soon as I can. Without them, my injuries could have been a lot, lot worse."
– Andy Dalton, paramedic from the Great North Air Ambulance
We managed to land in the field just behind where the bus was and we managed to see Alistair lying just behind the bus. It was obvious that he had hit the back of the bus at a fair speed and it was obvious that he'd banged his head as well because he was repeating himself a lot and he was not aware of what happened.
"We are just pleased that he's making a good recovery. It's always nice to meet a patient to see how they are getting on."

Love was all around Penrith Castle Park today (2nd July) when Steven Sheridan proposed to his partner Bernie Hynds, from Liverpool, which she accepted.
He proposed in the park's bandstand where he also displayed a banner declaring his love.
Steven Sheridan's proposal made the trip a double celebration for Bernie:
“This is the first time we have visited Penrith, but we have spent time in the Lake District before. We came here for a short break to celebrate Bernie’s 50th birthday and I planned this surprise proposal and Castle Park was the perfect place to pop the question and I am delighted Bernie said yes.'
He added: 'We are now off to Gretna Green and will get married tomorrow.”
Alan Hall from Eden District Council’s contractor Amey helped Steven with his surprise proposal by erecting the banner in the park and supplying a Castle Park rose for his new fiancée.
