The event was held at the uber dog friendly Happenstance bar and restaurant owned by Drake & Morgan. Not only hosting the biggest Charity dog show, Anna takes the opportunity to meet up with old friends and new. She talks to Alistair Mullens of This Is Vertus - the key sponsor of the event - whose new pet friendly apartment blocks are flying in the face of discriminatory landlords.
She also catches up with some of the judges, Nikki Tibbles, Founder of the Wild at Heart Foundation and host of Pod People Productions' Dog Bless You; Musician and Actor, Collette Cooper; and Photographer, Joseph Sinclair.
Aside from various stalls and exhibits, the main event was the picking a winner of the seven finalists in different categories. In the end, there was a three way tie and Anna gets the reaction of the joint winners Teresa Keown and Belhina, Joe Hepburn with ex racing greyhound, Rudy, and Adam Jarrell with Dexter, and of course PAAW House founder and organiser of Paawstival, Gabby Kuehn.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?
They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.
Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.
She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.
It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
