READERS' PHOTOS: Big and beautiful ... the best dogs in the central west

WITH an army of dogs and their proud owners descending on Orange and Bathurst this Sunday for the 2016 Million Paws Walk we thought it was a great time to showcase the best pups and pooches in the central west.

We asked you to post photos of your dogs on social media photos using #thecutestpooch and #battleofthebigdogs ... and you well and truly delivered.

Here's our gallery of your photos featuring the cutest and biggest dogs from Dubbo to Grenfell, Orange to Coonabarabran and Bathurst to Narromine.
