Dog owners are lending their pooches to elderly relatives in a bid to stop them from feeling lonely while in isolation during lockdown – Daily Mail

Dog-owners are seemingly starting a new trend during coronavirus isolation - 'loaning' their pooches to their elderly relatives who may be feeling lonely whilst stuck inside. 

In adorable photos shared on Twitter, a number of beloved dogs can be seen providing some much-needed support to the older generation, who are more at risk of contracting Covid-19. 

Author Clare Pooley kicked off the heartwarming photo thread when she took to social media on Monday to share a photo of her 11-year-old border terrier, Otto, nestled on the lap of her father Peter, 83. 

Little Otto seems perfectly at ease as he reclines on Peter, as Peter sat in an armchair reading a book.  3
