WATCH: Me and my best friend at the North East Dog Festival

Hundreds of furry friends hounded their owners to take them along to Whitehouse Farm yesterday for a paw-esome gathering.

The inaugural North East Dog Festival attracted a re-bark-able number of pooches in all shapes and sizes for a range of activities, competitions and general dog-related fun and games.
