And the award for cutest TSA bomb-sniffing dog goes to ... Alfie from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Chicago’s runner-up, Figor, from Midway Airport, is still very cute, though — and thankfully didn’t have to feign a stiff upper lip during a confetti-littered crowning ceremony.

The Transportation Security Administration hosted the online contest to coincide with National Dog Day earlier this week. Votes were cast on social media.

Other furry TSA finalists included Muk from Austin Bergstrom International Airport and Donna from St. Louis Lambert International Airport.
