The polls are closing for the top dogs in pop culture.

In honor of the American Kennel Club’s 125th anniversary, the AKC has teamed up with AOL’s PawNation.com to compile a list of the Top 125 Dogs in Popular Culture decided by pet lovers around the world. There’s just a couple days left before the polls close and the final results will be unveiled on Monday, Dec. 7. From cartoons to literary characters, dog lovers can vote for their favorite pups in the following 11 categories: 

Who is Your Favorite Cartoon Canine?

Who is Your Favorite Dog from TV?

Who is Your Favorite Movie Dog (Part 1)?

Which is Your Favorite Dog in Art or Fashion?

Who is Your Favorite Movie Dog (Part 2)?

Which is Your Favorite Dog Toy?

What is Your Favorite Dog Song?

Who is Your Favorite Advertising Mascot?

Who is Your Favorite College Mascot?

Who is Your Favorite Dog in Literature?

Who is Your Favorite Famous Dog?

Which pop culture pups are your favorites? Some of mine were missing, like Dug from the movie, Up, apparel company Life is Good’s mascot, Rocket, and the canine artwork of Stephen Huneck, who recently made Dog Fancy magazine’s list of 40 Dog People You’ve Gotta Know. Regardless, as a dog lover, I’m always excited to see dogs in artwork or advertisements, so it was fun to see them all recognized in one place.

I missed the inclusion of "Beautiful Joe" by Marshall Saunders in the literary category. "Beautiful Joe" is the dog story that parallels the horse story "Black Beauty."

I still have and treasure MY childhood copy of "Beautiful Joe" (which was published in 1955). I am not sure when the book was originally written.

I agree, if Dug were included, I would have voted for him too:)
