THE Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard had an extra special visitor this week when the loveable Loopy Lou paid our offices a visit.

Months later the pair are defying the odds and little Loopy Lou is proving she is a complete success in agility tests - despite her disability.
She has already achieved awards with the Kennel Club for its obedience classes for pet dogs and also training towards her Good Citizens award.
Mrs Hutton hopes to begin competition in agility shows with her in October.
