Liam Gallagher shows off his sausage dog at Primrose Hill competition
Britain’s coolest dog show took Primrose Hill by storm as celebrities flooded the park to show off their pet pooches on Saturday (September 8).
Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and his wife, All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, showed up with their matching sausage dogs, and struck rock star poses with man’s best friend atop the hill.
His brother Noel’s ex-wife, Meg Mathews, was also in attendance as patron of the event which was organised to raise awareness about the puppy farming industry.
Queen guitarist Brian May addressed the crowd with a speech about the horrors of puppy breeding centres where pets-to-be are kept in dark, cramped conditions, akin to battery farms.
Last year, an estimated, 900,000 dog owners bought their dogs from puppy farms without realising.

Pooches were judged in the categories of Prettiest Bitch, Campest Dog in London, Handsomest Dog and Coolest Dog.

No celebrity pets came out top dog but all the animals were made king of the hill for a day.
Ms Mathews, who was there with her 11-year-old daughter, Anais Gallagher, said: “It was an amazing day raising awareness for Pup Aid.
“I’m so delighted to be the patron and I was truly touched by the support from everyone – especially the pups on what was such a hot day!
“It was a great success and we hope to see everyone again next year!”
This year’s Pup Aid was the biggest competition yet as the event has moved from its south coast home, where it began three years ago, to north London, which is awash with celebrity dog lovers.
