From waggiest tail to most loveable, Whaley’s best pets

Whaley Bridge’s Rose Queen season came to a fun end as the family Pet Show attracted dozens of pets and their owners. Dogs are definitely favourite pets, and three of them got to show their unique appeal: the waggiest tail, the look that melts the judge, and then best of the best.

Waggiest tale rosette went to Minnie, a 12 year old beagle, shown by Mrs Debbie Raper.
