Saxon! How can you not fall in love with such a goofy, blissful redhead (shown above and below)?
In case you missed it: we asked readers to share pictures of their own dogs to complement our October story about "Seattle's Dog Obsession."
We then decided to choose the cutest dog from those submissions.
Settling on this totally biased and arbitrary decision was very difficult. Seattle mag readers posted so many wonderful pictures of adorable pups on our Facebook wall, we could barely breathe, let alone make a rational decision.
Thanks to all who played along and submitted your lovely pictures. They certainly helped brighten up a grey day.
Scroll down to enjoy a small selection of the "runners up." Or visit our Facebook wall for a raw and uncut cuteness overload.
