To kick off the tail-wagging celebration, the network is launching "The Hub's Pup-ularity Contest" August 1 in a search for America's happiest dog. The winner will be chosen from among nationwide consumer-submitted photos on Hubworld.com.

Beginning August 1 and continuing through August 8 at Hubworld.com, dog owners across America can submit a photo of their smiling pooch for a chance to win "The Hub's Pup-ularity Contest." Beginning August 11, visitors to www.hubworld.com/dogdays can vote on the dog they decide is the happiest pup in the pack. The winning dog will be unveiled in an on-air announcement during The Hub's special "Pound Puppies" marathon (Saturday, August 25, 9-11 a.m. ET) by "Dog Days of Summer" spokes-pup Cookie, a popular character from "Pound Puppies" (voiced by Yvette Nicole Brown, "Community").

The winning dog also receives a puppy-pampering trip to Hollywood, CA, with his or her owner and three of their human friends as well as a $2,500 cash prize and a doggie spa gift certificate.
