IT was a case of the tail wagging the dog as many pooches took their owners for a walk as Llys Nini's Animal Centre held its first Spring Mutt Strutt, at the Gnoll Country Park in Neath
Numerous responsible owners, some whose pet dogs are past purchases from Llys Nini, walked with their four legged friend around Gnoll Park, raising money to help the homeless animal centre, at Llys Nini, Penllergaer.
Dogs currently home in the centre, waiting for that right person to come along to make them a part of their lives, also joined the walk.
On enrolling, dogs received a Llys Nini neckerchief to wear on the walk and on finishing they received a certificate.
Christine Sweeney from Gorseinon who took Smokey, a January 2002 purchase from Llys Nini, along to the Spring Mutt Strutt, said: "It was a great first Spring Mutt Strutt organised by the centre, undoubtedly the first of many.
"It is just a shame the recent temperatures weren't more like spring temperatures, but at least it remained dry."
