HARTFORD – Today is National Dog Day, the day to celebrate man’s best friend!

The unofficial holiday was created in 2004.

The goal is to bring attention to our canine pals and other animals waiting in shelters for homes. Some shelters are waiving fees today.

Email us the pictures of your dog to pictures@foxct.com, submit them from the link below (desktop), or upload them in the app, and some may appear online or on-air later today.
