Canine chums and their owners enjoy the Costessey Scrufts show despite the rain

Four-legged friends and their owners enjoyed a fun day out despite the rain today.

The second Costessey Scrufts show took place at The Costessey Centre where dogs of all shapes and sizes took part in classes including cutest puppy and best veteran. In total there were about 150 entrants.

Toby Morrell, from the Longwater branch of Taverham Vets which organised the event, said: 'The show went really well and we had a really good turn-out. We had to postpone the start because of the thunderstorm but then there was a three hour window until the rain came back where we could do all the classes, the best in show, the agility dog demonstration, the gun dog demonstration and everything, so it a way it went perfectly,

'It was another success in typical British weather.'

The the best in show winner was Claude, a French Bulldog owned by Alison Bradford from Costessey.

The show raised �520 for German Shepherd Dog Rescue.
