A dog who loves to join walkers taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge has received a special honour.
Morris the pub pooch, who lives with owners Sabena and Colin Martin at the Old Hill Inn in Chapel le Dale, has been known to frequently disappear from the hostelry and follow walkers completing the trail up the mountains, the Yorkshire Dales National Park notes.
The Three Peaks Project - a body set up by the national park - has awarded Morris the status of honorary friend of the project in recognition of his love of the mountains, with the canine having climbed Ingleborough 32 times since Easter this year.
Those who fancy copying Morris and taking on the challenge themselves may wish to invest in items like a walking pole
, Ordnance Survey maps
to equip themselves for the trek.
Frequently undertaken for charity, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge includes Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, the latter being Yorkshire's highest mountain at 2,416 ft (736 m).
