THEY'RE said to be man's best friend and that's certainly true of these Hampshire pooches. 

Pet owners, and particularly dog lovers, are sending us happy pictures of their adored animals in their droves.

Today, we feature seven dashing dogs, including a rescue Boxer cross playing in the bluebells, a big softie German Shepherd and two inseparable pups. 

We love putting your pets centre stage in our regular pets platform in paper and online on a Saturday.
