It was a day to celebrate our four-legged family members and help other cute pooches waiting to find their forever home.
Dogs Trust Snetterton's popular annual fun day was attended by dogs of all breeds and sizes who were able to show off their skills in agility exercises and their good behaviour in a fun dog show.

A highlight of the event was an adrenaline fuelled demo from the Lowestoft Dog Agility Team. With people also having a chance to visit and make a fuss of the residents looking for a permanent home.
Kate Brewster, supporter relations officer at the centre, said: 'Our fun day was a huge success and for that we thank our incredible supporters and volunteers who helped us make the event bigger and better this year.
'It was such a fun day and we're lucky that the weather was on our side.
'Thanks to the generosity from people and organisations across the county, and our amazing volunteers who gave up their time and worked so hard, we raised a whopping £7,200 with money still coming in.
'Everything that Dogs Trust achieves is because of the wonderful support we receive; enabling us to care for and rehome over 15,000 dogs a year and educate half a million school children and communities.'
