"Juno is most definitely the CUTEST dog in Sonoma County... Just ask her! She loves everyone and everyone loves her! She also loves sugar snap peas, belly rubs and swimming, not necessarily in that order. She's the happiest dog I've ever met!"
Slide 3 of 11
"Latte is the cutest because he is the 5.5 lbs man of our convent family. He both comforts and protects all his nuns. He has a little bed outside chapel so he can join us for all our prayers. He is a little rescue pet but who rescued who :)?"

"For Rockwell, it's not all about the cuteness on the outside but all the cuteness on the inside as well. He'll give you love and comfort, and will make you feel like you have a new best friend."
Slide 5 of 11
"Bleu’s zest for life is infectious! Anyone that passes by on a walk can’t help but smile, while she grins from ear to ear. She loves everyone she meets. Despite becoming paralyzed when she was 1 yr old, she has never let it slow her down!"

"Roux is the cutest boxer pup out there. She loves a good snuggle as well as romping through the autumn leaves. She's as fearless as she is friendly & will introduce herself to anyone who crosses her path. Who could deny those brown eyes & floppy ears?"

"Stella brings joy to everyone she meets. From the toddler at the park she convinced to play a game of fetch, to the elderly woman at the coffee shop she lured in for pets. Stella is able to put a smile on anyone’s face!"
Slide 8 of 11
"Lotus is being entered at the insistence of others, lol. The "cutest..., the most beautiful..." etc., is all we hear, unsolicited, anywhere we take her. We believe what makes her so attractive is her fiery, loving spirit. She sparks up smiles!"
Slide 9 of 11
"My Rosey Posey is the cutest because despite having some rough bumps in her life, including being a stray in the streets of Mexico in her early years, undergoing back surgery, and being attacked by a dog, she remains the sweetest love bug EVER!"
Slide 10 of 11
"My dog [Piper Wallach] is the cutest because of her spot over her eye and her outgoing personality. She loves people and loves being around people as much as possible! She also has the best smile ever!"
Slide 11 of 11
"Lia is the absolute cutest because she is such an adorable, silly, & affectionate nut who makes everyone laugh with her playful antics, attention seeking maneuvers & joyful runs on the beach. It's hard to believe she was once a stray puppy in Mexico."
