The Diss Express region has been captivated by the Queen’s 90th birthday at the weekend, but another Norfolk resident also hit a major life milestone in recent days.

Dogs Trust Snetterton resident Molly, a Terrier Cross, turned 14 this week - the equivalent of 98 in human years.

Lauren Hillier, Dogs Trust Snetterton Assistant Manager, said: “We are all delighted to be celebrating Molly’s birthday. She is such a special lady and looks incredible for 98!”

She continued: “Of course she is well and truly into her retirement years now but she still has a cracking personality and would make a wonderful companion to a loving adult or older couple.

“Molly is looking for an adult only home where she will be the only pet.

“She likes gentle walks and having a potter around the garden. She also loves playing with soft toys and taking plenty of afternoon naps on a cosy bed. A home with no visiting children is a must as they may fuss her too much, and in her old age she likes plenty of peace and quiet.”
