CLEVELAND, Ohio – Saturday was a gorgeous day to spend the afternoon on the shores of Lake Erie -- playing with puppies!

That's exactly what Cleveland’s Best reporters Yadi Rodriguez and Brenda Cain, and dozens of dog owners did.

Sixty-five puppies strutted over to the cleveland.com tent at Edgewater Park for a photo shoot with Lake Erie in the background for Cleveland’s Cutest Puppy Contest.

Check out many of our favorite photos from the event.

If you couldn't make it don't worry -- you can enter your puppy by emailing a photo (see full details). Hurry, only the first 500 puppies will be accepted.

Puppies must be 1 year or younger as of Aug. 31.

The owner must live in one of the following counties: Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Portage, Geauga or Lake.

Important: You must have rights to the photo, and no professional photos will be accepted due to copyright restrictions.

Photos that contain more than one puppy will not be considered. If you would like to enter more than one puppy, please submit a separate entry for each puppy.
