It was the annual Chadkirk Dog Training Club bash and there were forty or fifty people and dogs present, many in fancy dress. (The dogs, not the owners.)
I’d agreed to go along to take a few photos for their website, but it turned into a family outing when Mrs P and my sister-in-law were asked to judge the fancy dress competition, then my daughter decided she’d join us as well.
The decibel and excitement levels were not unlike those of a kids’ party and the dogs were incapable of keeping their santa/elf/reindeer/wizard hats on for more than a minute at a time.
My own favourites on the right were Paddy as Father Christmas and his fairy princess who likes to flash her gnashers for the camera.
There were party games, of course, including musical chairs which I videoed, although it is probably only of interest to those taking part.
