Super Mario named top dog

The 2014 Scottish Week Dog Show was held on Thursday, July 24 and organisers hailed it as a huge success.

The event, held at the Community Centre, saw various breeds battle it out to win categories including Waggiest Tail and Fancy Dress, while also hoping to be named Best in Show.

Having featured in the Scottish Week programme since 1967, the Dog Show is a firm family favourite and this year it was sponsored by Mintlaw Vet Surgery.
