A WESTON vets practice celebrated two decades of caring for animals by hosting a charity dog show.
Clarendon Vets, who has looked after sick pets for 20 years, held an anniversary party in Ashcombe Park at the weekend.
About 200 people with 100 dogs came to take part in dog-themed activities, including getting advice on how to keep well-behaved canines from dog trainer Elaine Hart.
All dogs from pedigrees to mongrels were all invited, and took part in a light-hearted contest. Categories such as best-dressed dog and prettiest pooch meant lots of furry friends walk away with a prize.
Clarendon Vets raised more than £300, which will be shared between Weston Breast Cancer Support Group and Cats Protection.
Emma Palfrey, of Clarendon Vets, said: “Everybody had a good time, people have told us they have had a lovely time which is nice.
“We had a lot of support from the local community, I was totally overwhelmed with all the help.”
