Fairy canine costumes and dancing dogs were among the unusual sights at the 2012 Seaton Delaval Hall Dog Show.
Hundreds of animals were brought to the grounds of the Grade I listed building to compete for the title of Best In Show.
Eleven canines - the winners of each category in the competition - were selected to go head to head in the final round.
The categories included best costume, saddest eyes, waggiest tail, best trick and prettiest girl and boy.
A memorable moment from the event was the awarding of second prize in the Best Rescue Dog category to Steven Ryan's mongrel Gypsy.
Rescued from the streets of Romania and taken to a farm in Cumbria, Gypsy was later adopted by Mr Ryan's daughter.
Other highlights included the best costume category, featuring dogs dressed as hot dogs, christmas trees, horses and fairies.
