In 2004, "National Dog Day" was created to bring attention to the large numbers of animals up for adoption in local shelters.
This year to mark the event, NewsChannel 3 asked viewers to submit photos of their favorite furry friend. We got more than 150 of them! Many were shown on NewsChannel 3 Monday morning. The video attached to this story shows those pets.
Time constraints prevented all of the dogs from being shown on television, so we created a slide show to celebrate all of our favorite pets.
