Dozens of dogs and their owners took a well-heeled walk in the park yesterday to help raise funds for the RSPCA.
The 'Mutt Strutt' sponsored walk saw pets and their owners opt for either a 1.5m or a 3.5m circuit of Earlham Park.
Now in its second year, the event is aimed at helping raise funds for the Norwich and Mid Norfolk RSPCA branch.
The line-up also included rescue dogs Angel, a one-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, and Jackson, a Jack Russell of the same age, and an RSPCA inspector was also on hand to answer any queries or concerns.

Julie Bond, Norwich and Mid Norfolk RSPCA branch manager, said: 'We get all sorts of people and dogs of all shapes and breeds taking part. This is the second year we have done it and we want to make it an annual event. It's about fundraising and raising awareness, but it's also getting the dogs active and out.'
