David said: “Buster brings a smile to my face every single time I see him.

“When I am in his company, all the stress and strains of the day disappear. He has a loving and caring temperament and makes people smile and brings joy in the heart to everyone he meets.

“He will always be a winner to me and proves very popular in Kirkcaldy when out campaigning and meeting constituents.

“This fun event will be a great chance to celebrate the essential work MSPs are doing to improve dog welfare in Scotland while highlighting the importance of responsible dog ownership.”

MSPs are also calling for their supporters to vote for their canine companions online in a bid to win the ‘pawblic’ vote
