National Dog Day is coming up on August 26. And in preparation for that holiday, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is having a contest to pick the cutest canine from its roster of more than 1000 dogs trained to sniff out explosives.
Four furry finalists were in the running, chosen from those nominated by their handlers.
To narrow it down to a winner, the first match-up took place on Wednesday, August 19 between two of the finalists.
And it looks like Kajila from Honolulu’s Daniel Inouye International Airport (HNL) won that round.
On Thursday, August 20, the public was asked to pick their favorite between pup Lexa-Alexey from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Ron, who works at Oakland International Airport (OAK).
Voting in this second round ends early Friday morning.
On Friday, August 21, the winners of the first two rounds will go head to head, with the overall winner to be announced on August 26, National Dog Day.
