Today is National Dog Day, an annual event celebrating all dogs big and small, naughty and nice.
There is no arguing that owning a dog can benefit your mental wellbeing, improve your mood and happiness, and even help you get active.
As we celebrate our love for dogs, here are our readers reasons for loving their pooch.
