Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Guess what day it is? It's National Dog Day! August 26 is set aside every year to celebrate man's best friend.
We asked you to send in photos of your dog for our Facebook page, and the number of pictures we've received shows that there's a lot of love for dogs in the Northland.
National Dog Day was designed to bring attention to the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, plus acknowledge the importance of family pets and working dogs.
The National Dog Day website says if you don't know your dog's birthday, this day of honoring dogs can serve as their birthday!
