The dogs have been let out.

Cute pups lined the race course from Hopkinton to Boston on Marathon Monday, sporting some very adorable rain gear while they cheered on the athletes. From Brookline to Boylston, these pups (and their humans) provided some much needed encouragement to runners as they em-bark-ed on their 26.2 mile journey. Take a look below at some of our favorite race day dogs.
