A phenomenon has taken over Westminster and pictures of adorable dogs are being emailed to anyone with a parliamentary email address. Why? Because of the Westminster Dog of the Year competition.
First up, there's Cholmeley, who's best mates with Conservative MP David Burrowes, won Hadley Wood's Waggiest Tail competition in 2012, and has been in the top three for the last two years.
Some owners are particularly keen. Buster's pitch to voters got sent out five days ago.
Sausage's email was sent out five days ago too. He's campaigning on a platform of cuteness.
Kimbo the rescue dog's email was sent two days ago from the office of Tory MP Guto Bebb.
Meanwhile, Cosmo's email was only sent to those in parliament a few hours before voting closed. And rather than any sort of pitch, there was just a massive picture of his cute face.
