Our furry friends: National Dog Day 2016

Posted: Updated:

Today is National Dog Day, celebrating all things canine.

Each year on August 26, dogs are recognized as our friends, companions and lovable goofballs that occupy such a large part of our lives.

The day was founded in 2004 by pet & family lifestyle expert and animal advocate Colleen Paige, who is also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Cat Day and other days to bring attention to, and awareness of, fur babies, their needs, and cruelty to the animals.

Share your favorite photos of your pooch by sending them to PIX@WRCBtv.com and we'll share them online and on-air.
