We are so undeserving of dogs and their unlimited loyalty and love. National Dog Day on Aug. 26, should really be every day, but hey, they'll take what they can get. If you're a super dog mom or dad, chances are, you already have the pics and poses picked out for your incredibly adorable posts to commemorate this amazing day. Yes, those posts that will make us wannabe dog owners sit in a corner and pet our screens. Regardless, every dog is different, and as is the relationship between an owner and a dog. So, your Instagram captions for your National Dog Day photos have to encompass everything you and your pooch are about.

Dogs are the epitome of effortless cuteness, which makes snapping a shot of them so easy. The whole "man is dog's best friend" saying is accurate, but also super played out. Since dogs can't speak, unfortunately, it's an owner's job to sort of narrate their lives. That being said, you're going to want to pair your pooch's picture with a caption that says everything about them. Ultimately, words can't ever completely sum up the amazing ways dogs improve our lives. On National Dog Day, make sure you're giving them a caption that reflects your love and appreciation for them.
