The 142nd Westminster Kennel Club dog show took place earlier this month at The Piers in New York City.

Nearly 3,000 dogs travelled to the show from all 50 US states for the chance to be crowned 'Best in Show'. Although there could only be one winner, rest assured they are all good dogs.

The show is the second longest continuously running sporting event in the country - second only to the Kentucky Derby - and there are so many entries it takes the judges two days to assess each dog both in the ring and while on their bench.
