what’s not to love? It was a good day of peace, paws and music during the fifth annual Woofstock Music Fair , on March 22 in Islamorada. Founders Park at mile marker 87 in the Florida Keys was turned into a music and dog festival, complete with agility courses, lure coursing and demonstrations by Ultimate Air Dogs.

raindrops kept falling on our heads. Despite the rain throughout the day, loyal volunteers and friends of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay came out for annual Bark in the Park on March 29. The event was held at a new location, this year, Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, Tampa. Unfortunately, about 90 minutes into the event, the stormy weather put an end to the day’s fes- tivities. The event still managed to raise more than $100,000 for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. HumaneSocietyTampa.org
