LEILA the Japanese spitz wowed judges at her first ever dog show.
The three-year-old won prettiest bitch at the event at Castle Field, Southsea, yesterday, in aid of the Asthma, Allergy and Inﬂammation Charity.
There were 10 categories in all and Leila certainly shone in hers.
Owner Hannah Williams, 20, of Methuen Road, Eastney, said: ‘We’ve never entered her into a dog show before so we decided to go for it to see how she got on in the ring.
‘We didn’t actually think she would win so when they announced her name we were shocked.
‘Of course, we’ve always thought she was beautiful – a real cutey.’
Dozens of different breeds were entered into the show.
Miss Williams added: ‘It was good to meet other dog owners.
‘We were amazed at the different types of dogs out there. Some were very unusual and you don’t see them every day.’
Portsmouth Grammar School Junior School Brass Band and Silhouettes Majorettes entertained the crowds.
