The time has come, dear readers, to reveal which of the submissions for The Huffington Post Canada's first-ever Project Pet Contest earned the top prize, drawing votes (and presumably, lots of 'awwwws') from across the country.

Just to recap, here were our finalists:

Hannibel, the St. Bernard puppy who's currently weighing in at five pounds -- but will grow to 150 pounds.

Emmylou, the Bernese Mountain Dog who likes long walks in the park.

Bogey, whose physics-defying antics astound even his owners.

Draper, a Husky who can't get enough of bird-watching.

Qantas and Levi, Nova Scotia Duck Tollers, brothers that truly care for each other.

One last honourable mention goes to Eddie, "the frizzled cochin," a house chicken who came quite close to landing in the top five.

And now, without further ado, the winners of the Project Pet Contest -- the brothers Qantas and Levi!

project pet week 5 winner

Qantas and Levi's owners will receive a gift card -- and of course, some serious bragging rights in the face of such stiff competition. A huge thanks to everyone who entered the contest -- your pets were adorable!

Check out the other contenders for the crown -- and bookmark HuffPost Living for more adorable pet content coming from us soon!
