In honor of the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Google has dropped a pretty cute search feature.

When fans search for “Westminster Dog Show,” they’ll see a paw print in the left hand corner they can click; from there, dog paws will reach across the screen and barks will ring out in excitement. Each click adds a new pawprint to the screen and there’s also a reset button.

Similar projects, which Google calls “Easter eggs,” have included designs for “Legally Blonde,” “Google in 1998” and soccer player Pelé, said Nikhil Gopalam, associate product manager at Google who oversaw the launch.

“Our Easter Eggs are magical moments that inspire and connect us,” he told USA TODAY. “We love to celebrate fun moments in pop culture by creating delightful surprises when people come to search.”

He said this has been in the works for nearly two months and the lead artist for Google’s Westminster design, Olivia When, also participates in Doggust, a month-long art challenge where artists draw a dog every day.

This year’s competition will be on June 18, as well as June 20-22 at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York.

Television coverage of the annual dog show started in 1948, according to the club’s website. The show has traditionally been held at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Awards typically include Best of Breed or Best of Variety, or the dog considered as the best in its breed or variety. There’s also Best of Opposite Sex, or the best of the dogs that are the opposite sex to the Best of Breed winner, the organization’s website said.

Last year, the Westminster show added four new breeds: the Barbet, the Biewer Terrier, the Belgian Laekenois and the Dogo Argentino.
