Earlier in August, we announced that we were launching a new Facebook feature called “Cover Canine“. Even in our wildest, most optimistic dreams, we couldn’t have predicted the kind of response it received. In two short weeks, we received over 200 photos of dogs big and small, all showing off their best smiles. WHOA!

Choosing the best of the best, as it were, was insanely difficult! I mean, how do you choose?! After some serious hair pulling, we narrowed it down to the top eleven, seen here, and ultimately found our Cover Canine for September. Meet Aengus, a 7 year old Boston Terrier:
