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?
