It's the animal lover's highlight of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras - Fair Day's annual dog show spectacular, Doggywood.

Over the weekend, celebrity vet Dr Katrina Warren was joined by some of the LGBTIQ+ community's cutest pups, competing in a range of categories before an adoring audience at Sydney's Victoria Park.

The adorable doggos trotted and head-tilted their way into our hearts, vying for recognition in the categories of Best Dressed, Most Talented and Best In Show.

The winners?

Us, obviously.
