If there was ever a definition of a pet ruling the roost my griffon, Digby van Winkle, would fit it perfectly - he even has his own last name and he receives more mail than we do.

He's a bit of a superstar too, with over 34,000 fans on social media from all around the world. He's been immortalised on t-shirts and iPhone cases which is far more than most people can say for themselves. Check out his Facebook page

Quite frequently we'll find ourselves sitting on the dog bed while he enjoys the couch, mostly because he finds a good spot and refuses to move until you pick him up. Usually he's pretending to be asleep.

He winds down the window for himself in the back of the car and he dictates when the household wakes up for the day.

No visitor can enter the house without his approval - but we kind of like it that way. He's a character and you just can't help but love him.
