Thousands of dogs to descend on Norfolk Showground for All About Dogs show
Thousands of dogs and their best friends are set to flock to the Norfolk Showground for the 2017 All About Dogs event.
On Sunday and bank holiday Monday, the showground will again be transformed into a haven for the most talented, agile or brave pup.
Last year Britain's Got Talent stars Ashleigh and Pudsey delighted the crowds with their performances to music routines.
This year will see another Britain's Got Talent star duo Pippa and Buddy singing. Pippa entered the last Britain's Got Talent with her puppy, Buddy. The duet received a standing ovation from Simon Cowell and shining comments from all four judges.
Pippa and Buddy will be singing and performing on the main stage throughout the weekend.

There are also fun dog shows, including the chance to compete for titles such as waggiest tail, most awesome eyes, cutest pup, bad hair day, best rescue and best junior handler.
Stallholders at the event will have everything from rainbow-striped leads to doggie dental care.
Canine swimming pools, obstacle courses and talent shows go down a treat with owners as well as their pets.
In 2016, visitor Susan Bircham said she had seen every kind of dog trot by from pocket-sized pugs to high and mighty great danes.
But, she said, there was only one breed for her – the German shepherd.
Mrs Bircham volunteers with a group called UK German Shepherd Rescue, helping care for neglected and abused dogs across the country.
