It is darned hot outside today. It’s so hot, that June is starting to feel like, dare we say, the dog days of summer.

Speaking of which, today we’re voting on Group C in our Arlington’s Cutest Dog Contest. So avoid unnecessary perspiration: stay inside and vote for up to three of the cool pups below.

Voting for Group C will end on Thursday, July 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Here’s a reminder of what’s at stake in the final round:

  • Grand Prize: Apple iPad (courtesy of Siena Park, the new pet-friendly luxury apartment community on Columbia Pike)
  • Second Prize: $100 Wylie Wagg gift certificate (courtesy of Wylie Wagg in Clarendon, featuring healthy food and supplies for dogs and cats)
  • Third Prize: $50 Wylie Wagg gift certificate
  • All top three finishers will receive a soccer ball fetch toy from Wylie Wagg, in honor of the World Cup.

Good luck to all the contestants!

    VOTE FOR ROCKY!! Rocky has a loving Dad, Ravi and a special story. Rocky went missing about two years ago and his Dad put out a huge Rocky alert with a website and all. He launched a full fledged operation to find him and with the help of many friends in his community, he did. Rocky was so tired and very glad to be home safe and sound. Ravi and I used to work together. He is a nice guy. VOTE FOR ROCKY!

    Rocky has my vote and my heart. He’s a cutie and true rockstar dog worthy of bearing the title of cutest dog in Arlington. I helped search for him when he was missing for over 36 days in 2009. A truly amazing “tail” you can read about here.

    Cooper is quite the ladies man. He also helps senior citizens walk across the street. In his spare time he likes to give reviews on the best kind of dog treats.

  • Lynn

    Rocky has my vote and heart too! He is not only adorable but he is the canine version of Bear Grylls, having survived 36 days in the dead of winter before being found by his Daddy. He is the total package!

  • Brooke

    I’m pretty sure there’s never been a dog as cute as WINNIE! <3 the pugs

    PIIIIIGGGGGGG! Rescued from utter despair at the breeder….only to be safely delivered into the loving arms of her parents who were soon crushed by her weight. No one like her.

  • Hey Winnie, get it girl.

    Bently and Rocky do have personality and are handsome dogs, but Dexter is a killer. Yeah, he has only 12 weeks in this world, but he sure can pour it on with those Boston eyes!

  • Bear? What a name for such a cutie! Intended to simply respond to a friend’s request for support, but Bear is total contrast to his name — not at all fearsome or anti-social, but engaging and smile-provoking!
