Thousands of people flocked to the Norfolk Showground for the All About Dogs show to enjoy its wacky competitions today, with the show’s green-fingered equivalent, All About Gardening, also at the venue.

Hounds competed for fun prizes by performing tricks and looking their best.

There were also honours for the dog with the waggiest tail, the most extreme bad hair day and best sausage catcher, among other categories. And the sun shone on smiling owners as they enjoyed the canine day out.

Meanwhile, passionate planters were browsing for bargains at the All About Gardening Show.

There were floral displays to enjoy, experts on hand to advise on landscape and design and a food and drink festival.

Both shows continue at the Norfolk Showground tomorrow, with gates opening at 9.30am for the gardening show and 10am for the dog show. For further details, see www.aztecevents.co.uk or www.norfolkshowground.co.uk/

  • I agree with Canary Boy. Combining the two shows did not work. Far more people with dogs there than garden enthusiasts.

  • We on the other hand went for the dogs and thoroughly enjoyed our day out. However, what we didn't enjoy was the hour and half crawl off the A47 to get there and there were not enough food places for the number of people there. Enjoyed it though when we eventually got there :)

  • I went to what I thought was a gardening show today as advertised in the Lynn News yesterday. Have been to many garden shows at the showground before but we stayed about half an hour, after queing to pay probably about 10 mins, because I could not stand being totally surrounded by dogs. I go to most country shows where dogs are normally welcome and have never had a problem before but today was totally different I have never seen so many dogs in my life many snapping at each other. It is good that dog lovers can take their beloved pets with them to events but today was mad with very few gardening stands compared to dog stands and events. There are not two seperate shows but a dog event with a few garden stands around the entrance. Anyone turning up expecting the normal garden show, as I was, would have been dissappointed to have wasted their time,and money, attending. I certainly wont be going to any more so called gardening events here. Anyone thinking from the advertising that there are two seperate shows are mistaken it is just one event.
