A whippet called Deedee has been declared as the overall winner of the 101st Crufts dog show.
Dogs from 22 different countries competed in this year's event
The four-year-old, whose show name is Cobyco Call The Tune, beat six other competitors to win the Best in Show award at the end of the four-day event.
Deedee is owned by Mrs Lynne Yacoby-Wright of Mellor, Stockport.
More than 21,600 dogs and their owners took part in this year's Crufts, which was held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.
Mrs Yacoby-Wright, together with her mother Eva, breeds whippets and owns seven dogs.
Deedee, a bitch, is described as having a kind temperament.
Mrs Yacoby-Wright said: "I never thought when I left home this morning that I would end up here.
"We are delighted but we are tired and ready for a rest. Deedee sleeps on the bed with me and has done so since she was a puppy. She
will be there again tonight."
Animal rights protest
Winners in the gundog, hound, pastoral, terrier, toy, utility and working categories competed for Best in Show.
Runner up was a Scottish Terrier called Puzzle, owned by Jane Miller of Bracknell, Berkshire.
Four animal rights protesters brought proceedings to a temporary halt when they jumped the hoardings, bearing banners which read "stop Iams animal tests".
They were greeted with boos from the crowd before being marshalled out of the ring by stewards.
