It was difficult to tell who was panting more -- the dogs or their owners.
Despite Saturday's heat, hundreds of canines accompanied by their human companions headed out to Circa FishHawk Saturday for the annual Dog Fest sponsored by Aliquity.
The event, a fundraiser for pet charities, featured vendors, dog rescue groups, contests and demonstrations.
Aliquity is a nonprofit group that hosts events that connect business owners to their communities while supporting local charities.
