GwdToday names winner to National Dog Day picture contest
Thanks to everyone who took a moment to share their favorite picture of their dogs to help celebrate National Dog Day yesterday, Aug 26, 2015.

It was a very difficult task to choose one of these to win our $50 Gift Certificate but we were able to narrow it down to a few of the best.  Ultimately we had to decide  on one as tough as it was.

First here are a few honorable mentions:
#8 Duke - great picture of Duke and the owner and sharing how much love Duke has brought to their family.

#48 Miya - just the coolest looking dog.

#49 Callie for obtaining her drivers license.

So who was the Winner you ask?  Well it was none other than the absolutely cutest little puppy ever:
#19 Sophie, a 6 week old Boston Terrier who was caught on the camera trying to take a nap!  This picture was sent in by Lindsey Smith.

Here is all the picture we received so you can enjoy them as well.  Thanks to everyone who submitted pictures and hopefully you guys had a wonderful National Dog Day!
