The pop-up Pug Cafe took place in the city on Sunday at Revolution Bar in Queen Street, with plenty of treats for both dogs and humans.

Hot on the paws of the success of Dachshund Cafe, which came to the venue in the summer, the event gave owners and their four-legged-friends the chance to socialise.

The menu included pupcakes, dognuts, pawsecco, pawty rings, pupcorn, pupuccinos filled with cream and for guests with two legs there was cocktails and refreshments.

The Frenchie Cafe also took place at the bar during the day, with three 75-minute sessions dedicated to each breed and 150 dogs attended in total.

The event is organised by the Pug Cafe who have hosted meet-ups for small breeds in venues across the UK for over two years.

Anushka Fernando, event organiser, said: "The Pug and Frenchie Cafes are dedicated to our little furry friends and it is a place they can come and socialise with other dogs of their own breed and enjoy treats and cuddles from humans.

"The two breeds have completely different characters - pugs are very food-orientated and are all about the food, whereas Frenchies are more about playing.

"We brought the Dachshund Cafe here a few months ago which were really popular so I imagine we will come back with that, but we would also like to venture into new breeds, so perhaps the people of Norwich could let us know which ones."

Anna Howman, from Norwich said: "My pug Doris is one next week and we have come for an early birthday present.

"It has been pug mayhem and I didn't realise they would be let of the leads which is really good."

Henrietta Vamosi, from Cambridge and owner of Muesli the pug, said: "I am originally from Hungary and they are very popular there.
