The Canine Carnival held at the Bellfield Park, Banchory, recently attracted more than 200 dogs of all shapes, sizes and parentage, writes a contributor.

The event was organised by FRED (Fund Raising Events Delivered) in aid of funds for Mrs Murray’s Cat and Dog Home.

The sum of more than £1,100 was raised on the day.

A fun day for all the family and their canine companions was enjoyed with a variety of events to enter.

The Canine Adventure Playground proved to be popular with dogs getting a chance to try out their skills and entertain the enthusiastic spectators as they applauded their various efforts.

Overall winner of the novelty classes was a Rottweiler called Odin owned by Kerry- Lee West, from Aberdeen, reserve was Kaly, a Labrador from Banchory, owned by Kirsty Parfett.

Best in the care classes was another Labrador, Tarka, owned by Andrew Johnston, of Craigievar, and Torfinn an Irish Wolfhound, from Echt, was reserve with owner Steven Ritchie.
