Blue Peter dog Lucy - a pedigree golden retriever - died from cancer at the age of 13.

She was the seventh Blue Peter dog - a tradition of studio pets that went back to first Blue Peter dog - Petra

The idea of having Blue Peter pets came about in the early days of the childrens' television programme when it was thought to be a way of allowing children, who for various reasons could not have a pet of their own at home, to 'share' the pets who joined the presenters in the studio and sometimes on location.

Teaching children about responsible pet ownership and safety around animals has also been a key aim of the programme,

Lucy joined the show when she was around a year old and shared Blue Peter dog duties with Mabel until she retired in 2010.

Lucy had been appearing on the programme regularly until she began to seem unwell in late March 2011.

Lucy particularly loved playing with a yellow squeaky ball.
