The pet contestants compete in pet tricks with their pets and they score points. Amy who is still the only girl left in the pet competition scores 100 points. With her pets by her side, she is congratulated by Billy and the judges for 100 points for her kindness, sweetness, cuteness, happiness and bravery. Earl and Harry the boys with the lowest points and for arguing with each other during the pet competition land in the bottom two. The judges say that Earl had the best Bagheera costume but with the wrong color of the fur and Harry has the best Mowgli costume but just missed a few pet trick points. After that, they save Harry and eliminate Earl for not having the right Bagheera costume color and not enough points. He is mad and angry because he didn't make it to the final two and accidentally trips and falls down. Harry picks Earl up and asks him if he's okay. Earl agrees. He is okay but is still upset because he lost. Amy tells him "Calm down, Earl. Don't be uptight." Billy tells him "Sorry, Earl, three pet contestants take away one." Earl did not make it but he apologizes to Harry for arguing with him during the pet competition. He places 3rd with Sherrie and sits on the floor of the stage to calm down after he is landing in the bottom two 5 times. The final 2 pet contestants (Harry and Amy), still in their costumes, challenge their final pet tricks, but Harry, still in his Mowgli costume and wearing his red baseball hat, and Spot score 100 points and Amy, still in her ballet princess costume, and Princess, Pinkie Pie and Olivia score 95 points. Billy, still in his Baloo costume, is proud of both Amy and Harry after the kids land in the final two and so are the judges. He announces the winners after Judy hands the winning paper which also has a photo of Harry and Spot to him and the winners are Harry and his dog Spot. Harry gasps. He is winning the 32nd Annual National Pet Day Show along with his dog Despite kindness, sweetness, cuteness, happiness and bravery, Amy lost, but of course, she proudly congratulates her boyfriend when his smartness, leadership and intelligence won the day. Harry is crowned the 32nd winner of the 32nd Annual National Pet Day. He is so excited he wins 4 prizes: a trophy, red sunglasses because it's his favorite color, a year's supply of chocolate ice cream on a cone the special National Pet Day treat and a stuffed elephant doll because he loves elephants and also a winning co-hosting on the Miami beach talent show.

Maybe a lot more steps to go. (crying) I didn't even mean to let him or my grandpa down."
  • 3. Earl Earwax (placing 3rd): "I was so angry and disappointed because I didn't win National Pet Day, but I'm still happy that I had fun. I had a good time, but I couldn't make it because I can't believe I lost after 5 times in the bottom two and I did calm down now and can be ready to climb because losing the game is really hard for me out here. It's so upsetting I didn't make it."
  • 2. Amy Fourpaws (runner-up): "I had fun today around here. And it was awesome because I can't wait to see Harry and Spot get prizes.
