'Gravity' dog laps up film canine honour (a.k.a Oscars for dogs!)

The Greenland husky heard but not seen in box office hit Gravity has received two prizes at a London awards ceremony devoted to canine excellence on screen.

Naanak, whom Sandra Bullock's astronaut hears barking as she makes a distress call from space, was crowned best in world at Sunday's Fido awards.

The dog, who has since featured in the Gravity companion short Aningaaq, also received the blockbuster bowser prize.

A fluffy white dog named Suki was on hand to accept Naanak's trophy collar at Sunday's lunchtime ceremony, held at the Cinema Museum in south London.

Other winners at the glamorous awards ceremony for THE FIDOS – FOR INCREDIBLE DOGS ON SCREEN included:-

RomCom Rover – The new age Chihuahua and friends in The Bling Ring

Mutt Moment – Ripley for his family friendly turn in How I Live Now

Historical Hound – The bordello lapdog in The Great Gatsby

Comedy Canine – Nugget, the talking pooch from Small Apartments

Blockbuster Bowser & Best In World – Naanak, the husky heard barking off screen in Gravity and seen in companion short Aningaaq

And none for cats. Which canine do you think gave the best performance this year?
