And the Winner of the 2013 Cutest Dog Poll Is...


Not that we have anything against teeny tiny dogs (cough cough The Whole Enchihuahua), but we are stoked to crown the first big dog winner of our Cutest Dog Poll in years, Kaiyuh the Alaskan Malamute! Congratulations Kaiyuh, your furry face crushed this year's competition by a landslide.

To help you wrap your head about the magic of Kaiyuh, we lurked her owner Nichole Berger's Instagram feed and pulled a few of our favorite Kaiyuh moments:

Owner Nichole Berger's AWESOME Kaiyuh tattoo

Kaiyuh as a puppy! We dare you to not SOL (squeal out loud).

Kaiyuh will be honored with inclusion in our annual HOT 20 issue, the chance to serve as a judge at our annual Whole Enchihuahua Catwalk Costume Contest in May 2013, and a Pet Portrait Session on-location or in-studio courtesy of Nuena Photography, valued at $350!

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's fierce competition!
