Aug. 26 is National Dog Day, and many Southwest Louisiana residents are showing off their canine companions. You can view a slideshow of submissions HERE.

The day was created in 2004 by pet lifestyle writer Colleen Paige as a way to celebrate dogs who serve as guardians, caretakers and friends of families, law enforcement, military members and the disabled. The day also aims to bring awareness to dogs that are in need of rescue.
