The Oscars For Dogs: Best Snaps From The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

A Standard Poodle has won the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show -- and these pictures of pampered pooches living their best life will win your heart.

The Best in Show has been awarded, bringing an end to another year of seriously pampered pooches.

The past three days have seen the fluffiest, most agile and well-trained pooches compete at one of the world's biggest dog shows.

Since May 1877, dog breeders and trainers have flocked to the Westminster Kennel Club in New York.

The competition sees pooches tested on their agility and good looks.

In 2020 Siba the poodle beat 200 competitors to be awarded Best in Show.

She is the fifth of her breed to claim the honour.

This is Siba...

Here she is again...
