Happy National Dog Day!

There's few things a Hollywood star can count on more than their furry friends. Dogs have been there for our favorite celebs through thick and thin, great for Instagram likes, workout buddies, and always there to keep a good secret.

It's no wonder the stars came out on Friday to pay tribute to their four-legged companions. Check out a few of our favorite National Dog Day pics below.

John Stamos took to Instagram on Friday to share an adorable photo of himself swimming with his dog, Frieda, though pics like these aren’t uncommon on the 53-year-old actor’s page. Stamos’ Instagram is full of cute puppy pics of Frieda and his other dog, Linka, who died last week.
