Dogs with coats of many colours got together at a Meet The Dogs event on Tuesday.

Assistance dogs with their owners and socialisers took part in the event at Buckingham Library, as part of Make A Noise In Libraries Fortnight – a national campaign bringing public libraries and blind and partially sighted people together in an effort to improve access to books and information.

Organisations represented included Medical Detection Dogs, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Dogs for the Disabled, Pets as Therapy and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Buckingham Integrated Sensory Service were also there for their regular Tuesday morning advice session.

Senior supervisor Pam Gowen said: “The children loved the dogs. It was a really nice atmosphere.”
