Furry fundraisers helped do their bit to raise money for Thames Hospicecare at a Woofs and Wellies event on Saturday morning.
Dog owners were invited to bring their pets along for an early stroll starting off at the Bishopsgate entrance of Windsor Great Park, heading up the Long Walk and down Queen Anne's Road before returning to the starting point.
The 9km walk had a £10 entrance fee and owners were encouraged to get their friends and family to sponsor the dogs for the walk.
Michelle Bowdidge, community and events fundraising manager for the charity, estimated about £10,000 was raised from the 128 people taking part, with some sponsorship money still to be collected.
Every registered dog received a tag and its own doggy bag including gifts, treats and a medal.
Michelle said: "We were really pleased with the turnout. It was a cold morning but everyone seemed to enjoy it."
