What may appear to be an abandoned garden is actually home to an unusual array of insects.

This dog doesn't want to be carried in a handbag (how embarrassing!) or eat heart-shaped Mini Puppy Treats (I mean, come ON!) and under no circumstances does he ever want to be called... Choochie Pooh! If only his owner understood. All he wants to do is play with the big dogs in the park - chase sticks, jump in muddy puddles and be an ordinary, proper dog.
