Arlene Reigns Supreme

This year’s Mutt Madness competition was the fiercest we’ve seen! Adorable pups trotted out their best gear from Notre Dame to Kentucky to Maryland. All of the entries were awesome (awesomely cute) but in the end their can be only one victor.

Over 1,200 votes were submitted and this year’s Mutt Madness crown belongs the DEFINITIVE Georgia Bulldog – Miss Arlene!

Her championship comes with a 5-Day Pass for daycare and a goodie bag of toys and treats – not to mention bragging rights for the entire year!

Congrats Arlene!
