Despite the poor weather, your day may be brightened as your chance of finding money lying around is higher than ever.

500 of the handcrafted, origami animals have been spread over the city and hidden in places high and low.

Last week, London was the playground for the search of the money dogs.

The invasion of the tenner pups was created by life insurance provider, Beagle Street, who asked people on Twitter where the money should be dropped next.

Origami artists spent over 125 hours folding the intricate canines into figures only a couple inches tall.

Matthew Gledhill, managing director of Beagle Street, said: “Hopefully our £10 note Beagles will put a smile on people’s faces and pounds back into their pockets.”

If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a paper pooch, it’s up to you to decide whether to spend the money or keep the souvenir.

The stunt is expected to be repeated in other UK cities in the future.
