When Friday rolls around, we can't wait to sprint into the weekend — and if we could do so with the wild abandon of these dogs, we would! There is nothing quite so giggle-inducing as seeing a dog freeze-framed mid-run with a wonderfully goofy look on its face. Dogs have a knack for bringing the silly to daily life, even when they're trying to be serious. (Not that cats don't do their best to make us crack up too.) So, let these dogs give you a smile as we bound toward Saturday, full-speed ahead.
