Carrie Symonds with her new pup (Picture: Twitter/@carriesymonds)For all the different news stories coming out of Downing Street this week, Boris Johnson adopting a new puppy for the famous residences is certainly the most light-hearted one, even if it isn’t welcome news for Larry the cat .
A momentary distraction from what is likely to be a hugely turbulent week in politics has arrived at Downing Street, in the form of a 15-week-old puppy.The arrival of the dog may come as a shock to 12-year-old Larry, the No 10 cat which has served three prime ministers.
"We've had dogs swallowing stones before but usually one or two, three at a push - 206 is unheard of."You'd think as a 12-year-old he'd know better."We really thought the worst when we saw the X-ray - how are we going to get all these out?"How much damage has already been done?"But we're delighted he's made a full recovery, he's really very lucky to be alive."
