It was attended by glitzy Hollywood stars and their equally glitzy canine counterparts and all of the furry fun was aired on CW Network on January 15th.

The most prestigious award – Dog of The Year – was awarded to Hank, a stray dog that was adopted by the Milwaukee Brewers after he found his way into the Brewers training centre.

Hanks chaperon thanked everyone for his award and promised to continue looking after Hank so that he could continue ‘to make people smile.’
