Famous dogs including Lassie and the animated pooch Gromit were inducted into the world's first canine Walk of Fame last week in London.

Other top hounds included Fang from the Harry Potter films and Toto from The Wizard of Oz. But Tintin's sidekick Snowy failed to make the cut.

"Dogs play a very important role in our lives," said Caroline Kisko of the Kennel Club. "It is fantastic to see that this is felt the world over."

The winners, who also included Bobby from Greyfriars Bobby: The True Story of a Dog, Bullseye from Oliver! and Chance and Shadow from the Homeward Bound films, were chosen online by the general public.

Those left out in the Top Dog stakes also included Pongo and Perdita from 101 Dalmatians, Hooch from Turner and Hooch and the four-legged stars of Lady and the Tramp.(AFP)
