The 64th Windsor Championship Dog Show had a new twist in its tail this year.
For the first time the prestigious show, held in Home Park, had a heat that non-pedigree dogs could enter.
Show secretary Irene Terry said: "The Kennel Club ran it alongside the main show and I believe it attracted about 80 entrants."
The main show attracts entries from all over the country and abroad, its winners earning a place in the next competition at Crufts.
It ran for four days between Thursday and Sunday with heats for everything from hounds and terriers to working dogs, toy dogs and gundogs - covering almost every breed.
Mrs Terry said: "It was an extremely happy day for most exhibitors and of course it is in the most beautiful surroundings possible."
