We invited readers to send us photos of their dogs, and wow, did they ever oblige!

We received more than a hundred messages from readers, all about their dogs — cuddlers, athletes, therapy dogs, dainty dogs, bruisers, you name it.

There’s something special between people and their dogs, who love, play, protect and cuddle.

Here’s a sampling of reader messages about their dogs.
