image for Isle Of Wight News - Isle of Wight becomes Isle of Dogs for the Day Dicky Eye with his winning dog Woofers

Ventnor Youth Centre on Victoria Street went barking mad on Sunday when they hosted their Annual Dog Show, which went down a storm.

Dogs from around the island came to take part. From poodles to Bassett hounds. There were three categories up for grabs: best in show, best big dog, best small dog and best unidentifiable breed.

Best unidentifiable breed went to Phyllis Broadbottom, 74, of Luccombe (pictured).

"I don't know what sort of dog he is," said Phyllis showing off her Trophy from Vectis Trophyman of Ryde. "I think he's a collie, Labrador, pit-bull cross. There might be some poodle in there too, his great granddad was a pitbull, and no dog dare say no to him!"

Out of the thirty dogs that entered, roughly half of the on the Isle of White, the best big dog went to Marmaduke for the third year running. His owner Frank Ferdinand was pleased to retain the trophy. "I am pleased to retain the trophy," he said. "I'm still flabbergasted how a Yorkshire Terrier can win though!"

Best Small Dog went to Nibbles, described by his owner, Michael Rhodent as a mouse terrier. The judges were especially impressed with the large ears, hairless tail and significant overbite.

The big prize of best in show went to Dicky Eye and his white dog, Woofers [please find out what kind of dog it is before publishing - Ed]. This was the first time Dicky and Woofers had entered the competition and they were over the moon.

"It's brilliant," said Dicky, "We only came down cos I heard the beach at Ventnor was dog friendly."
