Four-legged friends were dressed for the occasion as a doggy disco took place in the city. 

Bow ties, denim jackets and a flat cap were among the items of animal clothing on display as dozens turned up for the Dachshund Disco at Revolución de Cuba.

Five sessions - two for dachshunds and three for doodles - were sold out on Sunday at the venue as owners brought their companions from all over the county to party. 

The pooches were treated to puppuccinos inside, an espresso size cup with whipped cream made specifically for dogs.

Dog-sized sofas, glow sticks, dance floors, water bowls and treats were all on offer to make the dogs feel right at home.

Event manager James Morgan, of Pop and Bark, holds dog discos for all breeds across the country having originally thought up the concept to cheer up his poorly pug Bertie.

"There are about 70 dachshunds and 130 people at the moment," Mr Morgan said.
