(WFXR) — For people who love their canine companions, Thursday marks one of the best holidays of the year because it’s National Dog Day!

The day is celebrated every year on Aug. 26 as a way to show appreciation to the hundreds of dog breeds around the world.

Dogs play an important number of roles nationwide, including protecting families and assisting those with disabilities.

National Dog Day also encourages you to adopt a pet from a shelter!

Here are some pictures of our very own “Good Day Virginia” anchor Amanda Kenney’s beloved pup, Paxton:
