Humans just can’t get enough of their dogs, and some people are so proud of their pampered pooches that they hold canine beauty pageants to decide which dog is the fairest in the land.
Photographer Sophie Gamand captures all the poshness, pageantry and pooch attitude of these beastly beauty parades in her series Dog Pageant, which focuses on "small dog owners in New York City and the dog-oriented events that their lives revolve around".
Sophie's wonderful images capture the personality and attitude of the canine contestants, as well as the lavish outfits their owners create in hopes of taking home the title of top dog.
New York City hosted its first dog beauty pageant in 2013, with 30 contestants competing in categories like evening wear and talent, but this pageant isn't all about the cute contestants- it's also a great way to raise money for animal charities.
