Dec Donnelly laughs as his pet dog Rocky desperately tries to avoid the vets in London – The Sun

DEC Donnelly couldn’t help but laugh as his pet dog Rocky desperately tried to avoid going to the vets today.

The 44-year-old’s dachshund spotted where he was headed and attempted to swerve it – before Dec managed to get him inside.

The Saturday Night Takeaway star saw the funny side of it and let out a giggle as they made their way in.

Rocky is no stranger to the vets as he was in the wars earlier this year following a run-in with a fox.

TV presenter Dec always makes sure his little sausage dog is in the best hands possible – and takes him to The Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick.

The "cheeky" intruder left Rocky in need of medical care, but the brave pooch survived to tell the tale.

Dec tweeted: "Another thank you to this guy @ProfNoelFitz & his amazing staff for looking after Rocky & getting him back on his feet after a run-in with a grumpy fox in our garden. Cheeky bugger!

"The care & attention from @fitzpatrickref is so reassuring & comforting. Thanks again everyone.D x"

He previously shared a picture of himself cuddled up with his pooch alongside the well-known TV vet, and Dec branded Noel and his colleagues “heroes”.

He wrote: “Another thank you to this legend and the amazing staff at @fitzpatrick_referrals for taking care of Rocky after the silly sausage hurt his back again!

“We never fail to be impressed by the kindness and care shown by all. You’re heroes! D x #dachshund #dachshundsofinstagram #supervet.”

Dec, who now a dad-of-one with wife Ali, is so close to the dog that he accompanied him for the BGT finals this year when his co-star Ant McPartlin was forced to pull out.

He told fans at the time: “Rocky has come to keep me company and show moral support as I’ll be on my own tonight, although I’m getting the feeling he’s not as excited about the start of the BGT semi-finals as I am.”

Meanwhile Rocky is best friends with Ant’s beloved dog Hurley – who currently spends his time between Ant and his estranged wife Lisa Armstrong.

He said previously: "We had a bit of time off last summer so we thought it would be good to get dogs and spend time with them while they were puppies.

“Now are dogs are best mates… It's nice because we've got the excuse that we need to take the dogs for a walk now and then we stop for a pint."
