April 11 is recognized as National Pet Day. Pet owners from all around the sports world took to social media to share their furry friends.
National Pet Day was created in 2004 as a way to encourage future pet owners to adopt their next pal. Their posts are proof that man's best friend can come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and even species.
Pet parents used the day to provide their companion with an extra dose of attention, particularly in the form of likes and retweets.
