Puppies vs Babies: Who Is Cuter?

Puppies vs Babies: Who Is Cuter?

Editor’s note: The following contest was created by Animal Planet and is not associated with Care2. For more information on the contest, please visit their site.

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.

Which Side Are You On?

As a dyed-in-the-wool animal lover, I am a bit biased relative to my  preference – but we want to hear from you! Let’s face it, some babies enter the world looking like little old men, monkeys or squatty accountants –right?  Bless his heart, but one of my nephews entered the world looking a bit like a baby Bonobo. I am not kidding.

Do You Have An Exceptionally Cute Pup or Baby? $5,0000 Can Be Yours!

How to Enter: Visit Puppies Vs Babies for all the information you need, but here’s a quick overview on how to enter!

Step 1: Find a Photo

Go find a totally adorable shot of your puppy or baby that is no more than 18 months old. Do you have a grown dog or child that used to be a puppy or baby? You’re in luck!  You can also submit baby photos of your grown dog or child that you might have taken years ago! (You can read more about eligible photos in the rules.)

Step 2: Submit Your Photo

If you’re a proud parent or owner, submit your cute baby or cuddly puppy photo using the form provided along with some brief info about what makes them special.

Step 3: Vote, Vote Vote & Tell Your Friends to Vote!

Starting Saturday, Oct. 22, voting will begin to ultimately determine a top baby and puppy to compete in the Championship round. If your baby or puppy makes it that far, you’ll get $5,000!  Easy as pie!

Good luck and submit your photo today >

Sometimes very hard to say. The other day I saw a colleague's new-born baby and she was the cutest little doll I have seen. The again, as mentioned in this article, some babies - when born - look so old and wrinkled that I thought they might make a good argument in favour of reincarnation! I think my vote would go to puppies!

Yes, baby animals are the cutest in my vote. :)

I hope the toddler doesn't grow up to be an obnoxious authoritarian adult! The dog may be gentle,…

Thanks, would be nice to actually see global action.
