National Dog Day 2013: Time To Celebrate Your Furry Friends (SUBMIT YOUR OWN PHOTOS)

Dog lovers rejoice! Today, August 26, is your day. National Dog Day, to be exact.

National Dog Day was started in 2004 to recognize the massive number of shelter pets looking for a good home and to encourage their adoption. If you're looking for a companion of your own and ready for the responsibility, take a look at the ASPCA adoption site or Petfinder.com to find a shelter near you.

HuffPosters shared some adorable photos of their best friends, and we want to see those furry pals that hold a special place in your heart. So upload a photo below, or tweet us @HuffPostGreen with your plans to celebrate this joyous occasion.

UPDATE 8/27: Submissions are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo and helped make this one of the best National Dog Days ever!
