It’s a ruff life … well, maybe not for these doggos! This year’s top dog is Mr. Fluffypants of Together Farms (W93 Norden Road, Mondovi) – an aptly named pooch who might try to sneak a bite of your juicy burger. Sharing is caring! Coming in second is Brutus from The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire). Before you down that Puff Tart XL, give him some belly pats! Rounding out the pack is Kaya at Raggedy Man (401 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), who is as gentle as she is heckin’ adorable; visit her at their new location soon! –Natalie Derks
