My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneExperts have long talked about the positive impact animals have on our lives, but what does that actually mean? It’s one of those vague things we regularly hear, but never really stop to think about. This week, however, we speak to people who have amazing stories to tell, and by the end of our fantastic feature you’ll be in no doubt whatsoever that animals really do make a difference in so many wonderful ways. Do you have your own tale (not tail!) of an extraordinary animal? If so, please do write in and let me know.

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly is a fantastic, warm-hearted brand with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on fiction and the advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that weekly reminder!
