UPDATED, March 26, 10:30 p.m. 

Patch is pleased to announce the pooch deemed "Cutest Pup in the 'Burbs" is ... (drum roll, please) ... CHARLIE MURPHY! 

Congrats to Charlie and his owners!


South Suburb folks sure love their dogs.

Dozens of Patch readers submitted pictures of their pups in honor of March 23. Now, it's time for you to choose the cutest!

Technically, some of these entries weren't puppies—but we know "puppy" is in the eye of the beholder. They'll always be your babies and we're so glad you shared with us!

Patch has weeded out the duplicates and nameless pooches, for a field of 34 hopefuls. Take a look at their pictures and then vote in our poll! The voting period will be open until Monday at 9 p.m. The winner will get bragging rights as Cutest Pup in the South 'Burbs!

Think we got it wrong? Tell us why in the comments section below or add a photo to our gallery! 

To upload a photo of your dog, just click on the "Upload Photos and Videos" button underneath the photo in the rop right of this article. It's as easy as that.

And after you've uploaded your photo, be sure to leave a comment about why you love your puppy.

Power to the puppies!

I blame my psycho family and facebook friends for all the votes. It wasn't me I swear! I actually voted only once and I voted for Bo.

Agreed, Blackhawks Fan! It's just a fun contest and chance for people to get involved. Everyone's pooches are pretty darn cute! And it's wonderful to see and hear how much owners love them!

Doesn't anyone recall the "Person of the Year" poll? It's obvious there's no merit on these things...just how many people you know. Definitely a cute idea though with the puppies!

Sarah - same thing happened with the pizza poll. But at least we get to see lots of cute puppies with this one! :-) I have no connection to any of these, but Peyton is the cutest one to me!!!
