The votes are in, and by a narrow margin ... TMZ's "Best in Show" go to a pair of lovable puppers -- Carl and Lily!
The couple's romantic doggy date video barely topped the cute raccoon who "Woke Up Like Dis" to take home 1st prize and $3,000 to boot. The 4 other finalists scored $500, as well.
Thank you to all the pet owners out there who submitted funny, creative and adorable vids of their little loved ones. Stay tuned for a new challenge next week for yet another chance to win some cash.
