They enter the world all smushy faced. They drool uncontrollably. They poop ad hoc on whatever or whomever is nearby. They make ridiculously darling cooing and grunting sounds. They have that unmistakable breath. Oh, the wonderment that is puppies and babies!
Everybody knows that the sight of a cuddly baby or a cute puppy makes minds melt and fuzzies warm, and now America can determine once and for all who is truly cuter in the online version of Puppies vs. Babies. Starting today, Animal Planet is holding a casting call for the cutest puppy and baby in America to compete in a head-to-head showdown.
