The best pictures of the week are chosen by YOU voting on our interactive slideshow.

This week in pictures at The Huffington Post, we have seen everything from smiling dogs, World War Two bomber lifted from the English Channel and incredible lightning stikes.

The Middleton sisters also appeared at separate events with Pippa turning on the charm at The Queen's Club and José Mourinho aka "the happy one" made a very humble return to Chelsea Football Club.

And then of course Pictures of the Week would not be complete without our overly cute animals photos.

Happy voting and we will announce the winner on Monday morning.
