Milwaukee – We don’t mean to hound you, but there are just a few days left to vote for our next safe digging ambassadog! Voting ends Wednesday, Aug. 5 and the race couldn’t be closer.

Dozens of We Energies customers submitted pictures of their pups — we’ve narrowed it down to 10 finalists. The winner will help us promote an important safety message: Doggone it! Call 811 at least three days before you dig.

Will a six-pound Pomeranian named Spartacus outperform the other pooches? Will Bender, the Admirals’ hockey pup, score a big victory? Or maybe it’ll be Simba, the loveable rescue who just can’t wait to be king!

Vote now! The winner will be revealed Tuesday, Aug. 11 — 811 Day.
