Messenger reader Marguerite Mackenzie, from Urmston, submitted this charming picture of Rubin, a silver blue Great Dane, which has taken a real liking to her granddaughter Grace.

Rubin lost his mother Macy a few months ago and was feeling and looking quite depressed.

However, now that Grace takes it upon herself to join him on the dog bed, he has perked up and follows her around everywhere.

Marguerite says he has such a lovely nature and absolutely adores Grace.
