We received a huge volume of cute entries in our Cutest Pet Photo contest, and a select sweet 16 made the final cut. To be clear: Every pet that entered is a winner in our eyes, but only one will take home the commemorative plaque! Who will it be? You decide! Today, vote on Round 1 contestants Lulu and Trotskey (a pair), Django, Pedro, and Darla! The two cutest animals will advance to Round 2.

Poll closes Monday, Aug 14, at 11:55 pm.
ICYMI: There's still time to vote in yesterday's match-ups, between Bowie (a dog wearing a watermelon as a hat), Sora (a cat wearing a lion mane costume), Bart (a pug wearing a shark costume), and Vinnie (a snowboarding Pom).
