Sharon Rawlinson says that her beloved Cavalier King Charles' spaniel Penny was the dog she should never have had. Her husband Brian originally said she couldn't have another dog, but then bought Penny as a Christmas surprise.
Sharon says that dogs are often described as man's best friend but in this case, after sniffing out her cancer, Penny is definitely a girl's best friend instead.
