Grab a leash and some comfy shoes: DogFest is scheduled for Sept. 27 and promises fun for all the people and pets in your family. This day-long festival will include games, contests, demonstrations, and kids' activities -- and everything there welcomes humans and dogs. Watch Rover knock down 10 pins in a game of bowling, play hide-n-seek, or paint with his paws (seriously). Challenge him with an agility course, have him tested for his AKC Canine Good Citizenship Award, let him swim, or visit a vet and trainer to ask questions.

Jen Seidel had no idea that when she decided to shake things up at a costume party eight years ago, she would end up falling in love with body paint artistry and turning it into a successful career. Now, Seidel has released a coffee table book, "Covered," featuring photos of her modeled artwork and hopes to use it as a tool to help others and continue to "paint it forward. " In a recent phone interview, Seidel, 45, who lives in Reisterstown, talked about how she got started in body painting, where it's taken her in her career and why she, well, does what she does.

Editor: The Bel Air Independence Day Committee Inc. hosted a terrific family-oriented day this past 4th of July. Most of our activities provide an opportunity for families to go somewhere fun on the 4th of July. Given all of the families that I saw out there, I would say that we were successful in that effort. Our theme for this year was "Celebrating America's Volunteers!" Since the Bel Air 4th of July event is an all-volunteer effort, we understand first-hand what volunteering is about.

Despite superstorm Sandy's best efforts, Hampden's Halloween festivities this year would not be derailed. Postponed, sure, but not canceled. So instead of the annual Hampden festival taking place Oct. 31, it took place the following Saturday, Nov. 3. And the change in time seemed to have very little impact on the turnout of trick-or-treaters or those entering in the costume contest. The winners this year, by age group and category, are: Ages 2 and Under: Adrianna Torres as a Scarecrow (Funniest)

The first entry in Sunday's costume contest at the 17th annual March for the Animals was a pit bull dressed as Batman. I was on a wooden stage with the other contest judges, about four feet off the ground at Druid Hill Park. That distance from the dog suited me. When I see pit bulls, even those in charming costume, I stay clear. They have a reputation for vicious mauling, and I'd rather avoid one. Still, I awarded eight out of 10 possible points to the beefy pit bull in the Batman cape.

BARCStobefest, one of Baltimore's biggest dog events, is Saturday. The forcast is calling for "brilliant sunshine" and a high in the 60s -- fate couldn't be saying, "Take that pup out," any clearer. Not only is the event one of the biggest moneymakers for the city's neediest animals, it's a ton of fun for pets. The highlight is the annual costume contest. You can enter a range of categories -- things like "Scariest," "Most Baltimore," "Cutest. " And at the end of the day, the winners in each category compete against each other for the big title.
