A dog groomer and her Catalan sheepdog proved every dog does have its day after walking away with a top prize at Crufts.

Four-year-old Hollie was one of 22,000 dogs at this year’s Kennel Club dog show, claiming the Best of Breed award.

Owner Andie Bland fought off competition from a whole host of other dogs to scoop the coveted prize.

“I am both very proud and very excited at the same time, it has been lovely, a truly great day,” said Ms Bland, of Spilsby Road, Boston.

“We had people in our group from a number of countries, every person has been so nice.”
