Greetings from a town where it's supposed to be 97 degrees today and my car's air conditioning has given up in protest. Who says the dog days of summer don't happen until August? According to all the festivals going on, it's time for canine celebrations everywhere!

The biggest dog party this weekend is happening in Toronto, where Woofstock is getting underway! In America, Kansas City is hosting its annual Dog N' Jog, while over in the UK the Great North Dog Walk will happen this weekend.

Meanwhile, in non-dog news, the amazing (?) Man Vs. Horse Marathon takes place in Wales this weekend.

If you're more into botany than zoology, Hawaii's King Kamehameha Day's floral parade may be more your speed (although even here there are horses featured).

And via a friend on Facebook who occasionally goes by the nickname Puma, I am informed that it is National Velociraptor Awareness Month. Get prepared!
