    The pint-sized pooches, from all over the UK, donned fancy ‘designer’ outfits as they competed for top spot as Britain’s Most Beautiful Chihuahua.

    And it was Twiglet, wearing a full-body pink pom-pom, who stole the show to be crowned ‘Miss Chihuahua Town’. 

    Meanwhile, Chiweenie Beanie – a chihuahua-dachshund cross – won the top prize in the fancy dress category for her party hat, multi-coloured wig and sunglasses combination. 

    More than 800 people and dogs attended the weekend’s chihuahua-only event in Yardley Gobion, Northants, which was organised by Kerry Brooks, who runs events for all breeds, under her ‘DogTown’ brand. 

    Other activities at the event included a cheese run challenge, where the dogs sprint as fast as they can down a lane, eating pieces of cheese lined up along the route.
