Quiz: Political pooches
Westminster saw the battle of the parliamentary pooches on Thursday as MPs and peers tried to get their pets named top dog.

Winning team: Lord Williams and Bippy
The Westminster Dog of the Year, organised by the Kennel Club and the National Canine Defence League, brought together pets of all political persuasions and breeds.

The aim was to highlight that dogs are very good at something for which politicians are not always known - endless loyalty.

The prize was picked up by Lord Williams, leader of the House of Lords, on behalf of his Jack Russell terrier, Bippy.

A member of the cabinet, Lord Williams had to leave a cabinet meeting early in order to be at the event - but he said he thought the Prime Minister would understand.

Meanwhile, we've lined up some of the dogs and some of the owners - but can you guess whose dog belong to which politician?

So how did you get on?
