As the public place their vote for the General Election on Thursday (12 November), Professional Adviser wanted to create some 'pawsitivity' by collecting adviser dogs (and other animals) at polling stations.
Our first 'good boy' to bless your newsfeed is Wally. Now, Wally knows he is a handsome boy according to owner and 4 Financial Planning founder and financial planner Ian Else.
Else said both he and Wally believe that if "you're doing okay in life, you have a duty to help others that aren't". Definitely a good boy, Wally is.
Unfortunately, our second dog was unable to vote today, due to seriously misbehaving at home yesterday. Paraplanner Stuart Edwards, who owns Luna, said he was planning on taking her to the polling stations this morning but then "this happened"...
Luna is unconvinced by pensions pledges and wants to focus on the NHS and environmental policies. She also wants everyone to be happy and play all day forever.
We at PA forgive you, Luna, for the mess you caused. Edwards, however, may need a little more time...
This is Henry the Norfolk Terrier, owned by Royal London personal finance specialist Rebecca O'Connor. Henry, as a nature lover, is a natural 'greenie' and is therefore pleased that most of the main parties are giving "so much attention" to the environment.
All that said, Henry would also like us to know that he is not fond of Jack Russells. A very smiley chap.
Of course, there are several people who sent their vote off via post and did not get the chance to take their pet to a polling station.
This did not stop Postcard Planning founder Rohan Sivajoti sending us a photo of his son's pterodactyl looking rather stressed at the thought of the election. Politically, Sivajoti informed PA this particular dinosaur is very concerned about the fishing industry.
Our calls for adviser pets at the polls has brought us another pup called Luna. Ovation Finance chairman and Financial Wellbeing Podcast presenter Chris Budd said his furry friend voted in order to prevent the extinction of dogkind.
Luna's face has been blurred for anonymity. It's definitely not the fault of whomever took the photo.
Dogs are not the only animals to venture out to have their voice heard. Last, and by no means least, Quilter mental health awareness campaigner and blogger Charlotte Hughes brought her lizard to her polling station this morning.
Jimi, like his mum, is a "bit of a nationalist". PA understands Jimi was too cold and sleepy to give a complete opinion on the matter but, by the looks of it, was clearly taking his voting very seriously. A great guy.
Biggest victory since Margaret Thatcher
Britons will head to the polls today for the nation’s third general election in less than five years.
