National Dog Day! Show Us Your Cute Pooches

In honor of National Dog Day, we asked our Facebook fans to send us photos of their favorite canines, and as always, they didn't disappoint. From service dogs and canine athletes to cuddle buddies and Ewok lookalikes, their submissions run the gamut of what it means to be man (or woman's) best friend.

Check them out in our gallery below, and don't forget to join in the celebration by sharing a photo of your best furry friend on our Facebook page!

Happy National Dog Day!
