We asked you to send us pics of your adorable pups– and tell us just why they’re so awesome – and you delivered! We had so many submissions, we wish we could have included each and every one.

It was hard to choose, but here’s a rundown of our favourite 26 puppies of Vancouver.

From Freda: “We adopted Zola just 3 months ago from Texas! Only a year old, they found her under a house w her pups. She’s now a food-obsessed, cuddly ball of love (who let us know yesterday that she is NOT a jogger!). We’re very happy with our lazy, loving little pupper.”

From Jess: “This is our prince, Gus! ‘Little Man Syndrome’ has never looked so good. He is a 65-pound fella, on 3-inch legs, how could you not smile just looking at him? He is the source of so much laughter (also so much stink – but we take the good with the…pungent). Plus, how cute does he look in his sports bra?”

Sunshine

From Jennifer: “My little girl’s name is Sunshine. She is a Pekingese as many people think she is a long haired pug (which does not exist). The great thing about her is that not only she makes my day when I come home from work but I know she makes other people’s day.”

MoMo

From Sharon and Ivan: “I  am “MoMo”.  Sometimes people call me “MooMoo” but I don’t mind if you get it wrong.  When you give me attention, it is like the sun is shining down on me and it feels wonderful. ”

From Samatha: “Reese loves everything about life. His most favourite things in life are breakfast, lunch, dinner and his best fur friend named Dexter. Reese doesn’t bark but clucks like a chicken when he gets really excited. If people could love life as much as Reese does, every day would be as wonderful as National Puppy Day!”

Yeti

Moved to Vancouver when she was about 10months old. Her favourite food is baked sweet potato, her hobby is napping and licking her paws, and she gets scared strangers and loud noises.”

From Anna: “As you may notice from the attached photo, Grace is not exactly a puppy. In fact, Grace is a senior canine, at 13 people years of age. She has lost most of the muscle from her back legs, has an ulcer and recently developed pancreatitis (likely from her younger cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking days and the stress of a care-free life of luxury). Don’t let the picture fool you; she also dislikes all dogs and most men, except for the random postman that comes by our house. She loves him. ”

From Kirsty: “Wonton is a one-eyed spicy meatball. We came across his photo after months of searching for a dog after the loss of our 14-year-old poodle and fell in love. He had lost his eye after being hit by a car at a young age, and his previous owners never claimed him from the shelter. Nowadays he’s a goofy little pup with a wiggly butt. He enjoys eating oranges and watching BBC Earth on rainy days.”

Tex is constantly at the beach hoarding sticks into a pile just to split them up just to gather them all together once again, a classic Collie/Heeler tendency!”

His interests include swimming just up to his ankles, barking at Huskies, and eating any paper he can find but is still the most loving, funny dog anyone could ask for!”
