Altham Care Home held their own version of Crufts Dog Show on Friday, ‘GRUFFS’.

The residents’ families and staff members brought in their pooches to take part in the competition, which was judged by residents,(left to right back row) Susan Skellern with Darcy, Georgina Caple with FiFi & Niall Morris with Toby,  The Judges (Left to Right) Graham Deeth , Joyce Howarth and Doris King.

Each contestant received a doggie goodie bag for taking part.

The judges scored each dog on which they felt was most petable, best behaved and best in show.
The residents enjoyed the afternoon and are looking forward to doing it again next year.
