Hot Dogs (and Cats)


It has been hot!  Nearly 100 degrees here in Morris County, New Jersey. And in the town of Boonton, there’s also a pack of hot dogs – hot in an artsy kind of way. They’re life-sized, fiber-glass creations decorated by local artists which have been unleashed along the town’s Main Street.

There’s a city dog.

Every year Boonton hosts a Dog Days of Summer Festival that begins with a leash cutting ceremony. Art dogs (and cats) are up for adoption until September 28. Funds go to benefit The North Star Animal League.

It’s a great way to take your mind off of the heat wave, while helping animals in need.

And how cool is that?
