Thousands of dogs are putting their best paws forward in Birmingham for the world-famous Crufts dog show.
The show has hit the headlines in recent months, after a documentary showed how some pedigree pooches suffer health problems because of the way they are bred.
The RSPCA animal charity pulled out of this year's Crufts saying it wanted the show to focus more on a dog's health and character and less on its looks.
The Kennel Club, which organises the show, says most dogs are healthy but it is now reviewing the standards for the 209 pedigree breeds in the UK.
Despite all the controversy, more than 150,000 dog lovers are expected to go to Crufts to see their favourite breeds parade around the ring.
There are more than 187 breeds on show and the competition is tough, but it looks like Ripley the collie has got plenty of good luck wishes.
Owners spend hours pampering their pooches so they look their best in the show ring.
But pushing them around in a pram...? Well, at least it will stop them getting mucky paws, and this Maltese dog doesn't seem to mind.
All that primping and preening can be pretty tiring, so it's a good job there's time for a nap between classes.
This dalmatian and King Charles spaniel seem more interested in checking out the competition.
When they're on show, the dogs are judged on how good they look and how well they perform in the ring.
There are loads of different events, including agility and doggy dancing, but at the end of the weekend only one top dog can be crowned best in show.
