Patients being treated for cancer at a hospital in North Wales are now being cheered up with visits from a dog that knows better than most, what they're going through.

Charlie the border collie was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes last year, but that hasn't stopped his weekly visits to patients having radiotherapy treatment - with many calling him an inspiration

He's one of 41 therapy dogs and cats who visit hospitals, schools and home as part of the Pets As Therapy scheme.
