Entries will be considered through Sept. 8. Official rules are posted at www.today.com/topdog.

"Chicago Fire" executive producers will review the applicants and choose the top three candidates. Those finalists will appear on "Today" on Sept. 24, when the public will vote at today.com to pick the winner. The winner will be announced Oct. 1 on "Today" or its web site.
