August 26 is National Dog Day, so give your dog a bone and submit your photos

Dogs are everyone's best friend. They drool, shed, but the sloppy kisses are worth the hard work. Monday is celebrated August 26 every year.

Send your dog photos to and they will be put in a slideshow and may be on the air today. View the slideshow here:

National Dog Day organizers encourage all to donate $5 to their local shelter for the occasion.
