Tim Tebow’s childhood dog, Otis, is somewhat of a celebrity.

Tebow talked about Otis in his memoir “Through My Eyes” and the story hit home for many readers. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback reminded everyone of Otis on Wednesday via an Instagram post celebrating National Dog Day.

“I’ve gotten who knows how many responses or letters or tweets or whatever saying that they love that part,” Tebow said of Otis in a 2011 interview with ESPN.com. “(But) there’s a lot of different stories that I think a lot of different types of people can relate to.”

Here’s to Otis and dogs everywhere. This is your day.
