Bobby the dog gets a new nose


One of Edinburgh's most famous dogs has been given a new nose after the old one was rubbed away!

People rub the statue of Greyfriars Bobby for good luck, but so many people patted Bobby's nose that the paint wore off.

Now the Skye Terrier has been given a lick of paint to restore him to his full glory.

Legend has it that around 150 years ago the real Bobby guarded his former owner's grave for 14 years.
