DOGS of all shapes and sizes, from Chihuauas to Great Danes, descended on Papplewick to take the lead in an annual canine show.

More than 230 much-loved pooches turned out for the event on the field at the back of the Griffin’s Head pub on Moor Road in the village last Sunday.

As well as competitions for pedigree dogs, there was a series of fun categories.

These included prizes for the dog with the waggiest tale, and also the cutest puppy.

This year, new categories for the best dog from Nottinghamshire and best visiting dog were launched.

This is because many owners travel from far and wide to take part in the show, which is run by the Yew Tree Canine Society.

Among those in the running for honours last weekend was a Bichon Frise who came all the way from Scotland.

Profits from the show, which has been held in Papplewick for the last three years will go to charity.

Paul Bullivant, of the Yew Tree Canine Society, said: “It was a brilliant day.”
