Kick off June with dog-friendly events

Dog owners can choose to take their pups to a barbeque, a festival or a charity walk this weekend. Don’t wait! We felt the oncoming mugginess of summer this week, and this’ll probably be one of the last weekends to enjoy the great outdoors without sweltering heat.

All threee of these events are on Saturday, June 1:
