Dozens of pooches ranging from Great Danes to tiny puppies were wagging their tails with joy as the fun dog show Overstrand Together returned.
The show – which last took place in 2019 – saw £1,100 raised for events and clubs around the village.
Julie Arrowsmith of Overstrand Togetherm said one of the highlights was the awarding of the first Mickey Sewell Perpetual Cup, won by a red setter rescue named Daisy and her owner Hilary Peatfield, of Overstrand.
Mrs. Sewell was the founder and main organizer of the annual village dog show for many years.
Ms Arrowsmith said she was delighted to be attending the event, hosted by Paul Hensby of Poppyland Radio.
She said: “We had over 170 dogs, with over 400 class registrations – there were dogs everywhere.
“The fun agility section was really great, with lots of dogs and owners trying out and donating to the Cinnamon Trust, who had a booth at the event.”
