I vote for #22 Munchkin because he is the Top Dog. He gives unconditional love, is very protective, has excellent manners, obeys house rules and very very playful. He has also been a therapy dog for those in need. There is nothing like a loving lick and smile from Munchie. This message has been approved by Munchkin :) Woof

I vote for OSCAR. I've met him while he was being walked. He is not only cute but extremely friendly, and quiet when he meets someone new.What more can one ask of their pet. I'd like to have his sibling for myself.

I vote for Munchkin (or is it MunchKING?). Any dog that can survive the mean streets of Madison with the name Munchkin deserves to win something.
