Pampered pooches strut their stuff

TOOWOOMBA'S most handsome hounds have bared their pearly-white fangs and strutted down the dog-walk for Petstock's search for the city's cutest pup.

The pet-friendly store was strictly a cat-free zone, though some of the smaller competitors would have been hard-pressed to beat a goldfish in a battle of strength.

Store manager Andrew Webb knew the competition would be popular, but never expected it to reach the level it did today.

"We just wanted to put on a free event to bring the fun back into retail," he said.

Judging by its success, Mr Webb said the competition was likely to become an annual fixture.

Georgia Osborne and cowboy-costumed jack russell Romeo took out the best-dressed prize while Emily Akers and

Minty the chihuahua won the best-dressed category.

Accolades for the cutest dog were awarded to 10-week-old pug Boss, owned by Mathew Salmon.
