Suffolk Community Foundation’s development director Tim Holder said he was impressed with how many people had voted.

“It’s amazing that over 3,000 people have already voted for Suffolk Dog Day’s Dog of the Decade,” he said. “The voting has been passionate, fast and furious, with so many people getting behind the dogs they love best.
