 Dog lovers may cast votes online now through April 25 for the “Top Dog” of the 2017 Bark in the Park Top Dog Festival presented by Purina and Harris Teeter.

Contestants submitted photos of their canine companions in March and an independent panel of judges selected three finalists based on cleverness, originality and a written essay. Finalists include:

Dooley, 7-year old Irish Wolfhound
Malchik, 5-year old Mutt
Zero, 6-month old mix breed

The “Top Dog” winner will be announced at the Bark in the Park Top Dog Festival. The winning dog will receive a year’s supply of dog food from Purina.
