Survival of the Cutest: Royal the German Shepherd Takes on Shamrock the Yorkshire Terrier in the Final Matchup

Shamrock, left, and Royal, right, are our two finalists.

Thirty pups have been eliminated in the Survival of the Cutest dog contest. We’re down to two contestants. One will take the cake. Who will it be? Royal, the handsome German Shepherd who looks clever in a pair of eyeglasses or Shamrock, the button-nosed Yorkshire Terrier born on St. Patrick’s Day? We’re taking your votes for two days. At midnight on Friday, we’ll tally them up to crown the cutest and reveal our winner inside D Magazine.
