Saturday is literally going to the dogs. To celebrate National Dog Day, The Daily Astorian was on the prowl for pooch pictures from their favorite people for the second year in a row.

We wound up in a digital dogpile as readers outdid themselves, submitting 207 photos featuring about 237 woofers.

According to www.nationaldogday.com, the day celebrates all kinds of canines and works to promote the many dogs that need to be rescued. The day also honors family dogs and working dogs.

Thanks to all those who answered the call and shared their canine friends with the coast.

Now, go fetch your pup and have a romp.
