Calling all pet owners and their photogenic pups: The Charleston Dog Walker hosts the Crown Dog of Charleston contest this month. The most "liked" pooch (all dogs are inherently wonderful, so there are no losers here) will be awarded the coveted crown and prize.

The winner takes home over $1,300 worth in prizes and bragging rights.

To enter the contest, submit the cutest photo of your beloved puppy on the Dog Walker website or vote for your favorite contestants here.

Public voting opens Feb. 17 and runs through March 1. Round one of voting is followed by a round where local judges (the crew from Mix 95.9's Two Girls & A Guy) will narrow down the top 10 to the final five, March 2-5. Finally, the public gets to vote one more  time, March 6-15.
