National Dog Day: Share your perfect pup pics with 9NEWS

9NEWS invites you to share your dog photos on Friday for National Dog Day.

COLORADO, USA — What would we do without man’s best friend?

National Dog Day allows dog owners, pet enthusiasts, canine photography enthusiasts, and all dog lovers to celebrate our furry friends who have been with us for at least 14,000 years.

The Aug. 26 holiday was first established in 2004. Many use the day to spread awareness of all the pups in shelters that are in need of a forever home.

We'd love to feature your dog photos on 9NEWS, 9NEWS.com and on the 9NEWS app.

To submit a photo or video, share with the 9NEWS app's Near Me feature.

  2. On the bottom right, you'll see a button called 'Near Me'—click it.
  3. Click the orange button in the top left part that says "Share with Us."
  4. Upload your photo or video directly from your device.
  5. Fill out the fields: give it a title, a credit, your email, and tell us where it was taken.
