This week brought us into the beautiful month of May. We also celebrated National Purebred Dog Day, Star Wars Day (may the fourth be with you), as well as Cinco de Mayo — and so did some of our canine friends. Check out a few of our favorite posts below!

For Wally the Welsh Corgi, this was a week he’ll never forget. If you recall, we recently shared that Wally was getting not one, but TWO human brothers — and they’ve arrived! Meet Miles and Max. Wally has already started taking his big brother duties very seriously.

Guard dog duty has officially started.

Family nap time!

But don’t worry, Wally still had time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

The Smith Family and their five beautiful Bernese Mountain Dogs took a trip to the beach. They made time for everything: swimming, rolling around in the sand, and, of course, posing for pictures.

“A sandy nose is a happy nose.”

Family love!

Don't know if you can tell…..but WE LOVE OUR PAWRENTS VERY MUCH 😍😍

Sirius the Newfoundland, aka @SiriustheBear, had a crazy week for a not-so-little pup. She practiced some agility, celebrated Star Wars Day to the fullest, and got up close and personal with the hose.

I was a good girl tonight at school!

Look at that face!

When you’re a Newf, all water is good water.

Who else celebrated Star Wars Day this week? Our pal, Ernie!

And Capria the Westie had some fun with the holiday, too. She was the cutest little Yoda we’ve ever seen.

May the 4th be with you ! #starwarsday #fridayflashback
