A police dog from the Avon & Somerset force has joined his handler in taking part in a 'push-up challenge.'
PC Steve Hopwood is doing 22 push-ups a day as part of the #22Kill challenge.
The campaign gets it's name from the number of US service veterans who commit suicide every day. This is echoed in the British former-service community.
In this country, suicide is the biggest cause of death in men under 45. The campaign hopes to get more people to talk about suicide and stop people suffering in silence.
On the 9th day of his push-up challenge, PC Hopwood was joined by his canine team mate!
