Monday, March 23 was National Puppy Day. We put a call out to our followers on Facebook for photos of their best dog friends. And Campbell River, what can I say, you did not disappoint. While I wish I could have included everyone from the more than 120 submissions we received, there just wasn’t enough room.

Without further ado, I introduce you to some of Campbell River’s dog population.
