Westminster Dog Of The Year

October 25, 2012 by  

Westminster Dog Of The Year, MPs and their hounds have braved inclement weather to take part in the 20th annual Westminster dog show.

The field was dominated by Conservative MPs once again, and despite the best efforts of a smattering of Lib Dem and Labour MPs, the “dog of the year” accolade was handed to Tory MP Charlie Elphicke.

Dog welfare charities Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club are the brains behind the contest. “Westminster dog of the year is a light-hearted way to encourage discussion on serious dog welfare issues needing urgent attention,” the Kennel Club’s Caroline Kisko has said.
