Who Has The Cutest Dog in Town? Enter & Vote Here

Sonoma Patch is holding a cutest dog contest, and according to the "rules" it ends at 2 pm today. Winner gets a $25 gift card to a local pet store!

Yikes! Voting ends Thursday afternoon at 2! This is your last chance to cast your vote for the cutest canine in the Valley of the Moon. Thanks for all your interest and nominations, we've had a barking good time!

We know you love to post photos of your pooch on Facebook or Tweet about all the cute things he/she is doing.

Now it's time for the big match-up to see who has the cutest dog in Sonoma.

We don't want to make a dog fight of it, or have one of those contests like they do in Petaluma. Let's make it simple, and as you, our Patch readers.

The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to a local pet supply store (for the dog), plus two Patch T-shirts and two Patch water bottles (for the owners). The first runner up will receive two Patch water bottles, so both of you, dog and human, can stay hydrated these summer days. Cool huh?

  • How to Enter: Upload photos to this article by clicking "Upload Photos and Videos" below the images on this page. Don't forget to include your name, the name of your dog and a way to contact you if you win! (Add this stuff in the caption)

  • Voting Deadline: Voting closes at 2 p.m., on Thursday, July 19.

IMPORTANT: SOME DOGS MIGHT HAVE THE SAME NAME. PLEASE SPECIFY THE PET AS CLEARLY AS YOU CAN WHEN YOU VOTE!

Spread the word about this fun contest by posting it on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. The voting will be done in the comments section of this article. One vote per user, per day, please.

Submit your photos now! Voting for the contest begins RIGHT NOW, on Thursday, July 5, and ends at 2 p.m., on, Thursday, July 19. The winner will be announced on July 20. Only comments during the voting period will be counted.

So grab that one photo of your dog on your digital camera, iPhone or floating around Facebook and upload it here today!
