Tails were wagging with delight when pet pooches took centre stage at a dog show on Sunday.

More than 150 dogs of all shapes and sizes took part in the show, which was organised by the Wisbech Retired Greyhound Trust and held at the Outwell Road field, near Emneth.

Visitors enjoyed the sunny weather and numerous dog classes, including a have-a-go agility, as well as various stalls and a raffle and a tombola.

Barbara Townsend, who runs the centre in Marshland St James, said the day was a great success.

She said generous donors and sponsors meant there was a trophy for every class this year, and there were also enquiries from people interested in re-homing some of the centre’s rescued animals.

The centre’s next show on August 30 will include a visit from the Pet Blood Bank.

People can take their dogs along to give blood and help save the lives of other canines.

The centre is also refurbishing all of its kennels in the first week of August and will be holding an open day for visitors to see the facilities once the work is complete.
