A number of dogs may well have been treated to some special dog food following the 2011 Dogs Trust Honours, an annual awards ceremony to celebrate the relationship between man and dog.

The Dogs Trust announced the winners of the five categories: Hero Dog, Golden Oldie, Dogged Devotion, Celebrity Canine and Dog's Best Friend.

More than 30 pooches and their owners went to the event, which was held on June 1st in London's Haberdashers Hall.

Clarissa Baldwin, Dogs Trust chief executive, said: "We're very grateful to all those who joined in this year's Dogs Trust Honours.
