CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Northern Ohio police and fire departments let their K9s take a break from fighting crime and saving lives to pose for quick photos that show these sidekick’s softer sides.

As if we didn’t already have enough reason to brag about them on social media, those photos are to celebrate the day that’s all about them: National Dog Day.

Departments from across the area shared these sweet snapshots of their very good boys and girls:

Firefighters and the pups they've posed with. Most pics are for charity, some are actually firefighter fur babies. #NationalDogDay #HeyAkron #PayItForwardForPets #OneOfAKindPets
