GALLERY: Kirton dog show

More than 250 pampered and playful pooches took part in a lively dog show in Kirton on the weekend.

The companion show, in a field off Meeres Lane, attracted dog owners from around the county who entered their pets in a whopping 520 pedigree and novelty classes.

Visitors were able to browse 30 stalls, including one where dogs got their pet portraits taken.

The day raised in excess of £2,000 for the Air Ambulance - and such was its success - it is set to become an annual event.

Organiser Sylvia Carter said: “It was only our first year but we had absolutely fantastic support, so much so that we are now hoping to make it an annual event.”

She added: “I would like to thank everyone who supported the event, especially all the businesses who donated prizes and gifts for the tombola and raffle.”
