Readers, we are happy to report that you submitted more than 700 photos of your canine companions to our Top Dog in Georgia photo contest.
You shared photos of tiny Chihuahuas, and one of a 170-pound mastiff. You shared the picture of the loyal standard poodle who waits for the children at the school bus stop. There was also the basset hound that somehow got onto the kitchen counter. (We suspect he got help with that feat.)
There were therapy dogs, dogs in tutus, nappers, ball fetchers, snugglers and swimmers.
Big, small, smooth, fluffy - the dog world was well represented, and so was the world of warm-hearted pet owners.
There were so many wonderful dog photos and personal stories that, frankly, the judges struggled to narrow this down to five finalists. So we decided to expand the finalists' group to the 10 great dogs that you see above.
Now it's time for you to vote for your favorite, just one vote per day please. The voting period will close at 5 p.m. on Aug. 30.
And please use the comments area below to tell us why you chose your Top Dog.
