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.

'Of course the idea is a bit mad but I really enjoyed it.'

Having licked their plates clean, the dogs enjoyed their own professional photo shoot, a game of pass the parcel and even got to take their own doggy goody bag home which contained two special mice pies for dogs.
