So. Much. CUTE.  We received over 1,200 entries in our 10th annual cutest pet contest, presented by Kennelwood Pet Resorts. Now, the Post-Dispatch staff has the unenviable task (and/or the best job in the world!) of somehow picking our favorites from these adorable finalists. 

Readers finished voting last week. Those picks are still a secret, but  — hint, hint  — we included readers' choice winners somewhere in this collection, too. 

The winners of mew-found fame and pup-ularity (plus some great prizes from Kennelwood and Portrait Your Pet) will be announced next week.
