So many cute faces, so little time, but kudos for crowning your favorite new furry friend to wrap up the first of our Best of 2009 polls! In a super-close race (presidential pet, Bo, held tightly to the second spot), I'm happy to congratulate the super-adorable Cha-Cha.

Including JJ and the (late) Jack, she makes it Jack Russell no. 3 for Mariah Carey; the singer received Cha-Cha in March as an anniversary present from husband Nick Cannon. Since I haven't seen enough of this pooch, peep more pictures below!
