This week’s Pet of the Week is a Welwyn Garden City boxer who tries to act like a human so she can get involved in the gossip when friends come over.

Meet Raya the boxer, who lives with her owner Caitlin Stacey and celebrated her second birthday this month.

Raya sits like a human and enjoys getting involved in the conversation when visitors come over.

But sometimes she lets her guard down and her dog characteristics shine through, especially during a walk when she likes to get extra muddy and then jump on Caitlin’s clean bed sheets.

She spends the majority of her day playing with her favourite toys – Kevin the carrot and Bruce the Brussels sprout.

If you have an adorable furry friend or a hilarious picture of your pet, send photos and a description to petoftheweek@

Please include where you live in Welwyn Hatfield or Potters Bar.
