TWIX the dog and his owner are a proud pair after they were awarded with a certificate of thanks from RSPCA Derby.
Julia Ludlum and her cocker spaniel have been successful street collectors for the animal charity in Ripley and Alfreton for more than a decade now.
On one occasion, handsome pooch Twix, now in partial retirement at 13, used his big brown eyes to help earn £200 in just six hours. Julia, of High Spannia, Kimberley, said: “He just has to sit there and people cough up the money - people sometimes buy him treats because he’s so beautiful. “
