Last week, Brit + Co teamed up with @DogsofInstagram in pursuit of the most patriotic, freedom-loving pups, because, of course, we love dogs! Dogs dressed as fireworks, Star Wars dogs, frankly, any sort of dogs in costumes all have a place in our hearts. Well, the response to our call was overwhelming, and so was the level of cuteness and red-white-and-blueness. See for yourself, as you scroll through our 35 most patriotic pooches:
