Dog stars to be honored in canine Walk of Fame

If you want to see the best and the most famous dogs you should see a canine walk of fame in London.

The first inductees will be six dogs chosen by public vote from a shortlist that includes Lassie, Toto from "The Wizard of Oz," cartoon superdog Gromit and Tintin's trusty companion, Snowy, organizers said Thursday.

The winners, to be announced Nov. 5, will get a permanent plaque in Battersea Park, south London. The nearby Battersea Dogs Home is Britain's largest and best-known home for abandoned dogs.

The walk of fame is sponsored by the Kennel Club and the television channel Sky Movies.

"To immortalize these dogs within Battersea Park, a place intrinsically linked to dogs itself, is very important to the Kennel Club and promotes the importance of dogs within our lives," said Kennel Club secretary Caroline Kisko.

Later this month, dog stars will be honored at the first ever Fido awards, billed as the canine equivalent of the Academy Awards. Among the leading contenders are five corgis who starred alongside Oscar-winner Helen Mirren in "The Queen."

When the bill was submitted to Congress on August 2, the reason for imposing the new sanctions on Russia was based on Russia's alleged interference in the US presidential election in 2016, but then something clicked
