VOTE: The Region's Top Dogs Are ...

We asked Patch users in Enfield, Tolland, Vernon, Mansfield, Storrs, Manchester, Ellington, Somers, Windsor Locks, and East Windsor to share their dog photos, and then vote for their favorite. Meet 7 great dogs!

Welcome to Round 2 of Patch's Top Dog Contest!

Between today and June 22, users will cast their vote in the comments section of this article for their favorite of the posted dogs. The winner of this round will receive a $100 gift card.

On June 23, the 4 regional winners will be unveiled, and they will face off to become Connecticut Patch’s Top Dog from June 23-30. The winner will be announced July 1. The winner of that competition will receive a painted portrait of their pet from noted Connecticut artist (and former Patch local editor) Carrie Jacobson.

They are all cute and all deserve to win, but my vote goes to Gizmo. I met this little guy a Valley Falls Park when his "Mom" brought him over to check out my motorcycle.She explained that he loved motorcycles,and sure enough,his eyes wandered over every inch of the bike.He is the biggest bundle of cuteness on 4 legs!!
