Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace. —Milan Kundera
In honor of National Dog Day today, we're celebrating all our amazing four-legged friends who love the Bay and its rivers and streams as much as we do! Check out these fantastic photos below and on our Facebook Photo Album from dog and Bay lovers all across the region. If not for us, let's #SaveTheBay for our beloved Chesapeake pups!
