Paige said she cheekily sent an email to Chill Factore, an indoor ski centre in Manchester. Hours before Sophia was due to be put down, Paige was told she'd be allowed in to play.

"It's her last day, so it's just been a wonderful end for her," Paige said. "She's a massive part of our life and I can't begin to say how much we're going to miss her, but it's made me happy knowing that she's had a wonderful day today."
