Canines from Tayside and Fife were among the winners in this year’s prestigious Crufts dog show held in England.
The four-day show returned to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham at the weekend after a pandemic-related absence.
Some 20,000 dogs attended, competing in breed, agility and obedience.
It was Baxer the flat-coated retriever who scooped best in show on Sunday, but there was also success closer to home as 10 winners and runners up travelled from Tayside and Fife.
