All pooches great and small were on display at the annual Morley Dog Show on Sunday.

Hundreds took advantage of the sunny weather as the town’s most talented and intelligent dogs showed of their skills at Dartmouth Park.

And to everyone’s amazement, organisers managed to book a star appearance from Britain’s Got Talent winner Jules O’Dywer, who judged one of the contests just a week after winning the ITV show for her double act freestyle with her very own canine, Matisse.

Beatrice Myers, from the Friends of Dartmouth Park group, said: “It went extremely well and a brilliant day was had by all.

“We’d like to thank our sponsors, Hydro Paws, Blades Dog Grooming, Onwards and Upwards who sponsored the refreshments and Abbey House Vets who helped arrange the main contests.

“There were masses and masses of dogs, a great crowd on the field and gorgeous weather.”
