TODAY is National Dogs Day so we thought what better way to celebrate than get photos from our readers of their furry friends.

So we have taken the lead and picked out just some of our favourites.

Amanda Guy from Oswaldtwistle sent in this photo of Angel and Penny

Lancashire Telegraph:

She said: "Penny was a rescue dog. I adopted Penny in 2009. She's still going strong.

"Penny once brought a wild duck home for us!! Angel is scared of the dark."

Meanwhile, Gracie Slater from Livesey sent in this photo of Chico

Lancashire Telegraph:

She said: "Chico is a 2 year old Chihuahua/Shih Tzu who I've had since a puppy. I got Chico for my 8th birthday and we've been best friends ever since."

Meanwhile Thomas Martin sent in this great photo of Zeb.

Lancashire Telegraph:

He said: "Zeb is a Rottweiler and is 11 years old and winston the pug is 9 year old"

Then Julia Stockton sent in this photo of sisterly love 

Lancashire Telegraph:

She said: "Roxy the Rottie pup. With Emelia and Isla Stockton"

Then we finally have Luna - a 18 month old chocolate cocker spaniel.

She loves a little dress up especially if there are treats involved.

Lancashire Telegraph:

You will also often find her with her head in the laundry basket or running around with a sock in her mouth. She also has a crazy dog mum who created an insta for her @luna.thechocolatecocker
