A HERO dog delivers The Sun every day to a loyal reader dying from terminal cancer.
Come rain or shine cockapoo Rusty makes the kilometre walk to the village shop to pick up the Sun for 81-year-old Ray Winn.
Owner Harriet Bailey, 37, and partner Dan Glover, 42, look after Dan’s father in law Ray at home in Storth, Cumbria.
Harriet told The Sun: “Rusty is determined to bring Ray his morning paper ever day, nobody can take it off him.
“Sometimes when it rains the paper gets wet, but Rusty won’t give in, he will always complete his delivery.
“He knows it’s his job, he’ll be up at 7am ready at the front door.”
Every morning Rusty wags his tail all the way to the village store where the shopkeeper gives him The Sun on the doorstep.
Harriet added: “Ray couldn’t go without reading The Sun, he has read paper since the 1960s when he was a bus driver and would read it on his tea break.
“It always brightens up his day especially when it is delivered by Rusty.”
