We've gone to the dogs ...

First Posted: 09/24/13 EDT Updated: 09/26/13 EDT

Update: We're in pooch heaven! You added so many awesome photos that we've decided to give out a prize. Submissions were closed on Wednesday (9/25) at 5 PM. Head to this page to vote for the top pooch now! We'll close the "polls" at 5PM on Thursday (9/26).

Devoted pooch owners celebrate their pups every day, but did you know that the last full week of September is the official National Dog Week? Established in 1928 by Captain William Lewis Judy, the special week was is meant to educate dog owners and help them become more responsible. We, on the other hand, just want to see your cute pics!

Add your furry friend's best photo below, or share a story in the comments. Please be sure your image is right-side up!
