The original ideas behind featuring the programme's pets were to teach viewers who had animals of their own how to look after them, and for the creatures to act as surrogate pets for those that did not own any.

She had several puppies, including Patch , who also became a Blue Peter pet, and who predeceased her. Petra lost her teeth at an early age, but this was not necessarily a bad thing; Blue Peter presenter Peter Purves once said that she was often bad-tempered and would "gum you to death" if she had the chance.
When Purves started working on the Blue Peter show and became Petra's handler on the set, Petra had already been on the show for about five years. Petra was an irritable nervous dog on the set, so Biddy Baxter had the idea that Purves should be Petra's permanent keeper, and so he looked after her at his home too.

Regardless, she later wrote that Noakes was too angry to discuss the matter and the two rarely spoke again. Noakes subsequently appeared in a series of television advertisements for Spillers "Choice Cuts" dog food, using a dog that was indistinguishable from Shep but named Skip.
