Pop babe Britney Spears has started celebrity dog wars after claiming her Chihuahua BIT BIT is "cuter" than Paris Hilton's famous accessory TINKERBELL.

The TOXIC singer started her canine family last spring (04) with Maltese puppy LACY LOO, before buying Bit Bit and more recently LUCKY.

Spears enthuses on her official website, "My dogs are stylin' and profilin' because VON DUTCH just sent them the coolest little clothes.

"I think my dogs are so much cuter than Tinkerbell."

Spears brought Bit Bit to The Billboard Music Awards in December (04), wearing a diamond-studded collar and recently hit the headlines for feeding her tiny pet a $180 (GBP94) steak in a top restaurant.

Despite her love for the dogs, Spears admits they still aren't house-trained and is regretting purchasing a white carpet.

She says, "My mom's mad because the dogs are still having problems with their potty training. It is kind of bad because we have white carpets. They will learn soon though."
