We're conducting our annual Cutest Dogs on the Hill competition, and this year, Independent Journal Review embraced democracy and opened up voting to the public.
Last week, thousands of Americans went to the polls to choose their favorite dog out of our 25 submissions, and this week the top ten dogs will compete to win a golden water bowl and bragging rights as the Cutest Dog on the Hill.

Voting for the second round will last a week, and our final list (including all 25 dogs) will be unveiled July 25.
In the meantime, meet the top ten dogs!! In no particular order:
