Have things been a little stale lately between you and your pup? Looking for a way to spice up those mundane Saturday morning walks or dog park excursions? Look no further than this weekend’s 19th Annual Dog Day Afternoon. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Flag Pole Hill Park will transform into a pup’s paradise, complete with free goodie bags and competitive K9 contests. Hopefully your furry pal will be so distracted by the alumni pooch parade that he won’t get jealous when you snag a slobbery smooch at the puppy-kissing booth. And if you or your dog needs a playmate, there will be plenty of dangerously adorable and adoptable cuties on hand. Most important, a free pet psychic just might help you get to the bottom of some of life’s most puzzling questions: namely, why the dog you diligently feed, walk and water ate your best pair of heels. For more information, visit operationkindness.org or call 972-428-7297.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
