Cute Dog Photos From 12th Annual Dog Photographer of the Year Awards 2017

Everyone loves an adorable dog photo and the ones we are going to show you today are enough to make you smile! The winners of the 12th annual Dog Photographer of the Year Awards for 2017 were announced this week by the Kennel Club, an international organization dedicated to dogs, dog owners, and people who work with dogs. Take a look at some of the most adorable and unique photos of dog photography you have seen in some time. 

The overall winner of the awards was Maria Davison, for her portrait of her friend's dog for the "Man's Best Friend" category (see photo below). Every photo shows the intangible joy a great dog can provide, but also that the power an awesome photo can truly make you feel great.

Here is what Davison said in this statement about her photo, provided by the Kennel Club: "It is one of the photographs I am most proud of. It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of my closest friends and her dog, Yzma."
