Surely every third-level in Ireland needs a dog like Jimmy?
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but this little guy just might be the cutest one we've ever seen.
Sausage dog Jimmy Chipolata (what a name btw) is a familiar face at Nottingham Trent University, where he works part-time with owner Debra Easter to help stressed-out students find some comfort.
If you've ever been to college, you know the pressures that come with it - the workload, exams, late nights in the SU, no food, no money...the list goes on. So who wouldn't want a snuggle with the irresistible sausie to help them chill out?
He was even spreading love on Valentine's Day:

Debra rescued her pooch two years ago and believes he's worth his weight in gold (well a much heavier weight) on campus, saying, "students really like having Jimmy around...our staff and students' wellbeing can be improved by stroking Jimmy".

All they need to do now is train him to fetch chicken fillet rolls and they would be in heaven!
And you can just call me Stewart Chipolata from now on...
