Literally just 10 adorable pictures of the dogs beloved by Milwaukee Magazine's staff.

Right now, Milwaukee Magazine is on the lookout for the cutest dog in Milwaukee. If you think your pooch fits the bill, head on over to Milwaukee Magazine’s Cutest Dog Contest to get the contest rules and submit your photos.

In the meantime, the poor employees of Milwaukee Magazine have been panting and drooling at their ineligibility to enter. Each of us firmly believes our dog is the cutest, but, tail between our legs, we must admit the world will never know because these pups cannot be judged.

While you prep your own entry (and wait for the judging to commence!), peruse this photo gallery of cuteness overload, brought to you by MilMag staff.

And don’t forget to enter!

Bruno

Human: Jane Stein, Sales Representative

Hi! My name is Bruno. I’m a 2-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer. My most favorite thing to do in the entire world is play fetch with tennis balls. My humans spoil me rotten, but I try to not let that show. Good luck, my furry friends!

Friday

Human: Emma Fisher, Administrative Assistant

Friday is a Wheaten Terrier who loves jumping really high, doing zoomies around the yard and wagging his little tail. He is a good snuggler and we love his fuzzy white coat!

Gus

Human: Katie Williams, Circulation Manager

“Gussy” is a 5-year-old Schnoodle who loves chasing squirrels and barking at any moving object. He’s a “macho man” in public, but a big, snuggly baby at home with his humans. He enjoys windows-down car rides and sitting under his human sister’s highchair at mealtime.

Lady Bear

Human: Shannon Dailey, Sales Representative

Lady Bear is part Border Collie, part Great Pyrenees and part sleeping beauty, as she sleeps most of the day. She loves to be outside and meet new people and dogs her size or larger. I would like to think she’s my baby girl; however, she really is very much tied to her dad’s hip!

Remus

Human: Lindsey Anderson, Culture Editor

Remus Anderson-Rios enjoys long walks through his neighborhood and sleepy Sunday morning cuddles. He’s currently unemployed, but happy to tackle odd jobs around the house (food cleanup, sock redistribution, etc.). Give him a spoonful of peanut butter, or a belly rub, and his heart will be yours forever.

Riley

Human: Chris Drosner, Executive Editor

Here’s Riley, the super-snuggly mutt of unknown lineage who joined our family via Rescue Gang last January. Cuteness often doesn’t need to be annotated, but I’ll point out his exquisitely dandy posture and adorable nose spots. There are similar brown spots on his ears, which are usually perky and bat-like, but he’s a little camera shy.

Rodger

Human: Kelly Rippl, Senior Graphic Designer/Production Coordinator

Rodger is a lover of cats (rarely mutual), all-day naps, traveling with his adopted-human and perpetual butt scratches. He will do anything for a treat, except look into the camera. He was adopted from MADACC, which found him on the day Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XLV.

Scooby Doo

Human: Natalie Blais, Sales Manager

This is Scooby Doo! He was rescued five years ago from a local pet rescue organization, JR Pups and Stuff. We thought he was Yorkshire Terrier mix, but after we did a DNA test on him (yes, you can test your dog’s DNA!) we found he’s 50 percent Shih Tsu and only 25 percent Yorkshire Terrier. Whatever he is, it really doesn’t matter — we love him so much! Is he the cutest?!

Big Mike

Human: Natalie Blais, Sales Manager

Big Mike just arrived in Milwaukee from Okinawa, Japan! He already loves his human sister and big brother, Scooby. A true Wisconsinite already, Big Mike enjoyed a Culver’s butterburger on his car ride home. #rescuedogsrule

Grady

Human: Paul John Higgins, Art Director

Although Grady looks like a puppy, he’s actually 12 human years old. He was a wedding present from me to my wife, and when we got him he was so small he could curl up in the palm of my hand. His name is a nod to Whitman Mayo’s character on Sanford and Son, Grady Wilson. But maybe that’s just our excuse to call him “Shady Grady” and yell “Grady, you big dummy!” when he poops in the house immediately after coming in from outside. He enjoys short walks, pretends he’s a big dog and loves kids, except for the ones who live in our house.
