Some were fluffy, some were scaly and some were feathery.
Pets from across Bass Coast and South Gippsland went head-to-head last week in the inaugural South Gippsland Sentinel-Times cutest pet competition.
We asked our Facebook audience last week to share photos of their pets and we were not disappointed.
More than 500 photos were entered.
While dogs dominated the playing field, we also had a frog, blue tongue lizard, several horses, donkeys and birds.
And boy, did we enjoy looking through the photos.
In the end, it was Emma Bowler from Wonthaggi who won by having the most likes on her photo of her dog Storm.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t think all the other pets are super cute as well.
Congratulations to Emma, who won a $50 voucher to spend at Wonthaggi Pet Supply.
It was hard but we picked some of our favourite entries below.
