The pop-up Pug Cafe took place in the city on Sunday at Revolution Bar in Queen Street, with plenty of treats for both dogs and humans.

Hot on the paws of the success of Dachshund Cafe, which came to the venue in the summer, the event gave owners and their four-legged-friends the chance to socialise.

The menu included pupcakes, dognuts, pawsecco, pawty rings, pupcorn, pupuccinos filled with cream and for guests with two legs there was cocktails and refreshments.

The Frenchie Cafe also took place at the bar during the day, with three 75-minute sessions dedicated to each breed and 150 dogs attended in total.

"The two breeds have completely different characters - pugs are very food-orientated and are all about the food, whereas Frenchies are more about playing.
