Every dog lover knows this fact: Dogs love to play, and that often means getting DIRTY. Running, jumping, fetching the ball—it can all lead to a lot of mess. But we also know another fact: It's all worth it for a happy, healthy dog. So in honor of International Mud Day, we are celebrating our canine companions’ boundless enthusiasm and love of a good romp. Below are some of our favorite submissions from our AKC Family Dog Photo Contest.

And for information on how to get your dog clean after playtime, visit our Health microsite for tips on grooming.

Now go on, get dirty!
