This is America’s most popular dog breed

It goes without saying that we love dogs of all kinds (almost too much!), but this is pretty interesting stuff: The American Kennel Club revealed the country’s most popular dog, and for the 26th consecutive year, the Labrador Retriever is top dog. Literally.

And we get it. They’re just so reliable, playful, and good natured. Not to mention smart! “The Labrador Retriever has a strong hold on the top spot, and doesn’t show signs of giving it up anytime soon,” said AKC vice president Gina DiNardo in a statement.

We did a little digging, and there are some very cute lab retrievers on the internet. WARNING: CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!

They even look after their feline friends! Awwwwwww.

Also included in the top 10 were Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Beagles, Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers, and Boxers. Don’t see yours on the list? Don’t worry! Because ALL dogs are good dogs.

Whatever type of dog you have, take today to celebrate their awesomeness.
