They say that a dog is a man’s best friend, so on National Dog Day, we want to take a moment to appreciate some special furry companions of the CFL! These pups are there for support through thick-and-thin, win-or-lose. Who do you think knows the best tricks?

Rocco reps for his main-man Aaron Grymes, showing off that Eskimo pride!

Lirim may have been a little early with his #NationalDogDay post, but we love that he was so well-prepared! We’re sure Tucker watches every Blue Bombers game to catch his BFF/BBF!

We’re sure he thinks you’re a good human, and that he’s proud of you too, Chad! If you’re an Argos fan, you’re probably aware that Chad and Trek are even closer than Ricky and Andre (if you can believe that…)
