Finalist canines live in Cleveland Hts.
Contest entries had to feature a moment only tolerated because a pet is being cute -- stealing a sock, chewing a shoe, shedding hair everywhere. (My rabbits would chew through cords and destroy carpeting, but that's a different story.)
Ten finalists were chosen based on theme, innovation, creativity, inspiration and originality. In Finalist #8, our local entry, Beagle mix Hugo and Jack Russell terrier mix Sadie claimed their spot by sleeping on Jessica Davis' bed.
"Hugo and Sadie love to have their bellies scratched and often take naps together on the bed," Jessica told Pledge. "Hugo, who is 1 year old, likes to wrestle with Sadie, but Sadie is the queen of the dog park."

The grand prize winner, who will get $5,000 cash, and two runners-up will be announced in the coming weeks. All three will also receive a year's supply of the new Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair.
