Let's rank the 2018 All-Stars by how cute their pets are

There are a lot of ways to rank this year's class of All-Stars. We could do it by WAR, by time in the league or even by height. But you can click "sort" on spreadsheets yourself. Why not get a little more adventurous? We're here to rank every All-Star by … pet cuteness.
If you don't see your favorite All-Star on this list, it's not because we think his pet is ugly! Now, not every All-Star appears to have a pet, and some, like Joey Votto, have pets that are a bit camera-shy. Additionally, every single one of these pets is cute and perfect, and the difference separating each one is just a fraction of a degree (but the difference is still there, those are just the rules of ranking things).
And now, in ascending order, your 2018 All-Stars ranked by pet cuteness.
He has two dogs named Judd and Sage, and you can see them over at this 2016 story from the Dallas Morning News. Mitch, give us more dog pictures so we can rank you higher.
