The Bracket of Cuteness was introduced last week on our Recycler.com Pets Facebook page so that you could have a say in helping us determine which Cute Pet of the Day would take home this year’s crown. There was only one upset in the opening round, but sadly the fervent smile of Wrigley the Basset Hound couldn’t pull off the #8 over #1 seed upset against adorable little baby Beagle Pistachio in the Canine Division as I personally had hoped. Who was the one lower seed to be able to make his/her way to the Elite 8 round? Find out below:

Bracket of Cuteness – Elite 8 Matchups
That leaves some tremendous Elite 8 matchups coming this week. Top vote getter Thor the Husky, the Canine No. 4 seed, now has to face off with Pistachio. On the other side of the bracket in the Feline Division, No. 1 seed Cilia the Siamese will be challenged by little white kitty Dumplin, who won by the largest margin in the first round. The bottom half of the bracket will see a pair of puppies face off when the Canine Division’s No. 2 and No. 3 seeds battle to get your to say “Awwww…” and vote for them. Dearfield the Terrier will face stiff…and absolutely adorable competition in Cinnamon the American Bulldog. After pulling the upset in the first round, can Anastasia the Tortoiseshell do it again? She will have to knock off No. 2 seed Bengal-Tabby mix Starlight. Who will win and advance to the Final Four?!? That’s completely up to you.
