Residents from Coopers Croft care home in Stoke on Trent welcomed local dog owners to their Coopers Canine Capers dog show recently, along with special guest, Lord Mayor Majid Khan.
Families from the community brought their pups to compete in seven categories including Most Handsome Boy, Prettiest Girl and Best Treat Catcher.
A panel of judges was made up of 84-year-old Irene Potts, a resident at Coopers Croft, Lord Mayor Majid Khan, Lady Mayoress Tahira Khan and Counsellor Shaun Pender.
