March is upon us, which means the Madness is about to kick into full swing. And what better way to get in the mood for tourney season than to fill out completely arbitrary brackets?

First up is the cutest breed of puppy, because … puppies.

We've finally got our inaugural puppy bracket winner. The Yellow Labrador ran away with the title, garnering 68 percent of the vote to finish with 1,561 votes to the Beagle's 743.

Our next Totally Random Tournament will post on Monday and it will be 'Best sports movies'. Thanks for voting!
