The Mail Tribune's 2013 Cute Pet Photo Contest received 782 submissions from readers, setting up a huge job for our judges.

Entrants showed off a variety of pet types — mostly cats and dogs — but a few parrots, rodents and reptiles made an appearance, too.

Judges selected their three Cutest Cat photos and three Top Dog photos, while readers selected a People's Pet through online voting.

The Top Dog is Willy, owned by Judy Gambee of Medford.

The Cutest Cat is Kodi, owned by Diane Wittenberg of Medford.

The People's Pet is Coco, owned by Paige Fagundes of Medford.
