August 26 is National Dog Day!

National Dog Day was created back in 2004, and it gives us a chance to stop and appreciate those who offer us their unconditional love, support, and acceptance: our pups!

If you'd like to submit photos for our SLIDESHOW, please email them to pictures@abcfoxmontana.com or submit them on our FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/ABCFOXMONTANA
