Dog lovers paid tribute at the weekend to Fife woman Rebecca Johnson, allegedly murdered by her boyfriend in Lapland.
Rebecca, who was well-known in canine sport circles, was found dead in the village of Kuttanen in the northern region of Finland on December 3.
The 26-year-old from Burntisland was working there with Santa Safaris, which runs Christmas-themed tours for tourists.
Her aunt Fiona Hay joined members of Dana’s Angels Fife and Carnegie Canines who held a minute’s applause for Rebecca at an event on Sunday and presented a best of show trophy named in her honour.
Dana’s Angels Fife, which helps find lost dogs, posted on its Facebook page: “Rebecca’s life revolved around dogs and this seems a fitting tribute.
“Our thoughts are with Rebecca’s family and friends at this time.”
