Hey everybody … it’s March 23, and you know what that means! That’s right; it’s National Puppy Day 2013!!! Founded in 2005, National Puppy Day is intended to bring awareness to orphaned puppies in need of loving homes, and who’s not down with that? It also offers an excuse to go all golly-gee at a lot of pics of adorable pups, like you need an excuse to do that!
That being said, thanks to the San Francisco Chronicle, here are 37 pics of the cutest pooches EVER! You can enter your own puppy’s pic to this gallery if you feel your little guy or gal deserves that distinction. And if you’re thinking of bringing a puppy home, or adding to your brood, please check out rescue and shelter dogs. They need love, too, maybe more than most!!!
