It was a championship matchup that people will tell their grandchildren about.

Meatball Luff and Lucy Anderson went nose-to-nose and left everything out on the field.

There were a total of 20,901 votes in three days and there were five (FIVE!) lead changes in the final 24 hours.

In the end, Meatball Luff prevailed to become the first ever two-time Bark Madness Champion.

The final vote totals: 10,464 for Meatball, 10,437 for Lucy.

Just 27 votes separated these two titans, once again reminding everyone that Every. Vote. Matters.

Instagram from @theluffpups: We are back with ONE FINAL announcement!! The Twitter & IG polls are finished, but there is still time to vote! Online voting at (link in bio) is open until 11:59 PT TONIGHT! Lucy won Instagram. Meatball won Twitter. The online poll will determine Bark Madness' 2020 champion.

Rookie Mikey Anderson and his extremely good girl, Lucy, threw everything they had at the reigning champ, but the Meatball Mafia came through in the final hours.
