To kick off the New Year, we thought it would be great to showcase some of our favorite smiles on Instagram. We've compiled a list of 16 dogs contending for the 'Best Smile of the Year'! Voting is now open on the @DogAwards story and will continue for the next 24 hours, so don't miss your chance to participate! Stay tuned and follow @DogAwards to vote in the upcoming rounds. Remember to check back tomorrow to see the results.
