HONOLULU (KHON2) — Hawaii’s first Puppy Bowl participant, Hoku, claimed victory during round two of their ‘pupularity contest.’ However, it appears she is no longer the winner.
On Thursday, Jan. 27, Hoku claimed her victory with 55% of the votes.
Then, a check on the official puppy bowl website showed that Hoku was no longer in the running. According to the Maui Humane Society (MHS), Hoku will be “throwing in the towel for the pupularity contest.” They also contacted Animal Planet and will speak with them within the next week to figure out what exactly happened.
According to the website, she was supposed to advance to the third round. Voting for this round has already started and will close on Thursday, Feb. 3.
