A LOVE-struck dog owner says she's more lenient with her pet than she is with her boyfriend.
Alexa Cobbold says her adorable three-year-old Boston Terrier Betty has free reign of her house.

The pup is so adored, she travels with Alexa and her partner when they head abroad.
Alexa said: “Betty definitely rules our home; she has her own bed in every room but chooses to sleep in ours and comes on every UK holiday with us, we’d never leave her behind.
“I let Betty get away with plenty of things that would drive me mad if my partner did them.

She explained: "Betty probably eats better than I do.

She also lets her dog eat at the table at Christmas – and last year, Betty got her very own advent calendar.
Alexa's generosity isn't totally out of the ordinary when it comes to Brits caring for their canines.
A recent study by Hammonds Furniture surveyed 2,000 animal owners in the UK to find out just how far they'd go to spoil and pamper their pooches
One in five confessed to sharing food with their furry friends when eating a meal or snack.
Six per cent admitted they don't mind if their pet wants to join at the table and use same crockery.
And it turns out that only 11 per cent of dog owners don’t spoil their fur babies at all, according to the survey.
