The fire is burning, Christmas presents have been opened and the turkey dinner is served - all sounds like a traditional family Christmas meal.
This was the scene at a pub in Norfolk which was hosting a Christmas meal.....for dogs.
On Saturday, 36 canine friends enjoyed their very own festive celebration at The Ship Inn, in Caister.
From small pugs to irish wolfhounds the furry friends tucked into a lunch of turkey, yorkshire puddings, pigs in blankets, peas and carrots.
Owner of The Ship Inn, Sue Henney said the idea was inspired by the pub's dog friendly approach.
