A rainy Sunday failed to put any snouts out of joint as a band of determined Schnauzer-owners and their four-legged friends took to the Heath last weekend.
The outing, which formed part of Schnauzerfest 2018, saw a pack of eager Heath-lovers get take advantage of the opportunity to share treats while fundraising for the Diana Brimblecombe animal rescue centre in Reading.
More than 30 schnauzers had fun, too.
The event was also attended by a number of ringers.
Ten “honorary schnauzers of various breeds” crashed the event to help support a good cause and raise £206.30 for the rescue centre.
