Mixed breeds and mutts of the world unite! Yup, today is officially National Mutt Day. Founded by pet activist Colleen Paige, the occasion is intended to be a celebration of the “many wonderful attributes of mutts” while also promoting the ever-worthy cause of dog adoption.

In honor of the event, here’s a photo roundup of proud mutts who are definitely not afraid of a mixed planet. Salute!

A good mutt knows to always keep at least one eye on the cereal prize.

Did you know that Mutt Butt Mondays is a popular hashtag on Instagram? These proud pooches certainly do — check out their glutes!

Let this smorgasbord of itty bitty cutie-pie mutts brighten up your day.

This perturbed mutt named Patrick is certainly taking one for the team!

Odie is a Husky, Boxer, and Coonhound mix. Here he’s demonstrating an advanced-level napping position.

An event like National Mutt Day warrants a formal dress code. The addition of the red bird here pulls the whole look together.
