And you really delivered!

Devon the Westie may have won the best in show prize in the end, but we think these lovable pooches are some of Wearside's finest!

We've had dogs watching the telly, comforting their owners after a difficult day and even one who supports the Black Cats!

From the cute and cuddly to the huge and energetic, we've loved meeting your pets.

Meet Alfie, Bella, George, Tess, Lola, Archie, Baron, Brody, Bandit, Lycan, Nyia and Tehya.

Thanks to Anita Armstrong, Catherine Welch, Chris Enright, Dione Clark, Hannah Stefanski, Joanne Armstrong, Karen Banks, Nigel Bromley and Sara Dixon for sharing their pictures.
