This Friday, August 26, is the 12th annual National Dog Day, an annual event conceived by animal advocate Colleen Paige back in 2004. The mission of the celebration is straightforward: “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledge family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort.” The National Dog Day website even offers “20 Ways to Celebrate,” ranging from giving your dog a massage to having a party with all your pup’s best pals.

Brush off your favorite photos of your dog because on Friday, we’ll celebrate by asking our readers to post photos of their best friends, and three random commenters will receive a new collar and a dog toy! So make sure you check in on Friday to celebrate with us!
