There's nothing like celebrating the Fourth of July: barbecues, swimming pools, friends, family, and of course, our pups.

Say hello to the dogs who had the time of their lives this weekend, paying tribute to the 'ol red, white, and blue, and partying like it's 1776.

This little Border Terrier is all snuggles with his Uncle Sam hat pillow.

Bentley the Golden went all out this year. And luckily, he can reuse that outfit for the Olympics this summer.

This Frenchie was suspicious everyone had started the festivities without her.



This Lab is proud to show his excitement for U.S. Independence.

You wish you had sunglasses that are as cool as this Corgi's.



Nothing more like celebrating the beauty of America with a cowboy hat and a Newfie.

This pup heard there would be a Fourth of July barbecue. And he wants in. Sorry pup, you gotta stick with dog food.



Aaaaand, there's nothing more patriotic than Fourth of July zoomies, courtesy of this Corgi puppy.
