We're pretty excited about the number of dogs who spent time with their humans #backyarding this past weekend. You played and swam and just hung out in the sun which is what a holiday weekend is all about.

We had thousands of votes cast for these beautiful #backyarding pups and our winner captured some serious relaxation points too.

Jennifer Waicukauski snapped a pic of North the Golden Retriever resting on the patio among a few Fall leaves. Jennifer wins a $100 Home Depot Card so that she can get some #backyarding work of her own done. Then she can relax on the patio with North.

We've also got 9 runners-up that captured that #backyarding spirit.
