Duke, best friend to Janine Wyszynski and Joe Maloney, of Fairmount, takes to the fountain behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art because, well, it's August.

Ilene Cantor and her three Shitzu dogs Dusty, Daphne and Daisey, soak up the sun in Rittenhouse Square Park yesterday as the afternoon weather was, for a change, fairly nice. It didn't last.

Putting down a hot asphalt roof in 90-degree weather leaves something to be desired - like another line of work, perhaps. But the good news for these roofers is that the mercury, which hit 91 yesterday, will taper off to 85 today under sunny skies.

It's so hot you want to open a fire hydrant and . . . Naah! This is April. Springtime. Average high temperature is 69. Forget it, friends. Pretend it's summer. At least for a few days. Yesterday's high: 92. The old record-high temperature, set in 1962, was 87. "We broke that one but good," said Accu-Weather meteorologist Paul Yeager. Today's high is targeted for 93, but the record set in 1915 is 93. So it'll be harder to beat. Some folks just refuse to accept it. Take the Parking Authority meterman papering cars on Broad Street yesterday.

A couple of times, Randy Wolf's career has detoured into a construction zone. When it's happened, the Phillies have made sure their seat belt was fastened and braced for a bumpy ride, always believing a patch of smoother road was just around the next bend. That is the approach they will continue to take with Wolf, a precocious lefthander whose 24th birthday today won't be quite as happy after he was knocked out of last night's 7-4 loss to the Reds at Cinergy Field after three innings, matching the shortest previous outings of his big-league career.

CAME ACROSS a story that the Milwaukee Brewers were having a bobblehead night for Hank. Being a bobblehead collector, I naturally thought "Milwaukee . . . Hank . . . How cool is that? A bobblehead night for Hank Aaron. " Wrong! Hank is a dog that wandered into Maryvale Baseball Park, the Brewers' spring-training site in Phoenix, last month and soon after was taken to the vet by Brewers staff members. After Hank was treated for lacerations on his underside, staffers bought him a bed, set him up in the office and took turns taking him home at night.

Logan, a 7-year-old, bomb-sniffing German shepherd, was the pride of the Folcroft Borough Police Department until he was diagnosed with a progressive spinal condition that left him unable to walk. He was euthanized in November. Now the Delaware County department is trying to raise $18,000 to replace what it sees as an essential member of the force. But as Folcroft plans for another dog, other small departments in the area are opting to drop their canine programs, which they find too costly.

March of the Penguins - phooey! Those smelly little birds are built to survive in the frozen tundra, and nobody's asking them to pull a sled. In Eight Below, on the other hand, a pack of keen-eyed huskies and malamutes brave the Antarctic winter after their human owners have abandoned them. Battling subzero temperatures, blizzards, and some kind of leopard seal that looks like it grew up watching Alien, the pooches huddle in frigid drifts wondering whether the star of 2 Fast 2 Furious will ever come back to them.

Summertime. Fish jump. Cotton grows. TV stinks. All the good stuff's running through its second cycle, and even if you saw a show only once all winter, that's the episode that turns up when you tune in again in summer. Lousy pilots that couldn't even find work at a fly-by-night network get shuffled surreptitiously onto the screen. The phoniest of award shows - America's Favorite Young Comedians Who Have Never Earned More Than $750 in Their Careers - pop up. Which is fine, because nobody watches TV much in the summer.

Every summer, ACCT Philly has to fight tooth and nail to save animals in its care, and this one is no different. The summer of 2015 has brought an average of 26 dogs into the shelter each day, more than during the other seasons, Ed Fritz, ACCT Philly's director of operations, said Monday. With an average daily adoption rate of just eight dogs, the kennel is constantly approaching its capacity of 160. More people surrender or abandon their pets in the summer than in cooler months, said Ame Dorminy of ACCT Philly's adoption team.

THE CHESTNUT HILL Business District, proud of being a pooch paradise where many shops display "Dogs Welcome Here" signs, will prove it tomorrow when it presents "Dog Days of Summer" from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., followed by "Yappy Hour" until 6 p.m. at several outdoor cafes. How dog friendly is Chestnut Hill? The banks welcome four-legged companions as long as they don't make any deposits. Canine (and feline) lovers, and their hairy pals, can stroll down shady East Southampton Avenue and adjoining Germantown Avenue to schmooze with holistic veterinarian Natasha Kassell, gentle "Bad Dog Good Dog" trainer C.J. Hazell (who taught her chicken, "Hen-rietta," to twirl)

SUMMER is coughing out its last humid gasp and we'll soon be embroiled in dumb debates over how badly the Eagles will disappoint us this year. But first, let us ponder lessons from the Philly summer of 2014. What did we learn, people? 1. Amateur athletes can be more satisfying to watch than professional ones. In their thrilling August quest for a Little League World Series championship, the Taney Dragons showed more zeal, compassion and grace than the millionaire-clogged teams who annually break our hearts for a living.

TODAY IS National Hot Dog Day. And, while the rest of the nation celebrates by scarfing down a tasty wiener or two, we decided to roast a different type of hot dog: the athlete who craves attention. Some we cheer, some we boo. It's not a definitive list. In fact, we welcome any additions you may have. But no list would be complete without: Terrell Owens: Situps in driveway say it all. Chad Johnson/Chad Ochocinco: A jerk by any other name. Johnny Manziel: A legend in his own mind.

THERE WERE 45 college football games with a betting line this opening weekend. In only three of them was anyone favored by more than the 30 points that Notre Dame is laying against Temple. So you think the Owls would have been better off starting their season for the fifth straight time against FCS Villanova at the Linc? Locally, maybe. But from a national perspective, you know how many programs would want to be in South Bend and on NBC? Maybe the difference between playing Villanova and Notre Dame is the difference between Temple getting bowl eligible or not. Or perhaps it isn't.

IT'S SUMMERTIME and the livin' is easy, especially for Pennsylvania legislators. They left Harrisburg the first week of July and aren't due back until after Labor Day, leaving behind a huge pile of unfinished business. Left hanging was not only legislation dealing with Philadelphia's public schools - which, according to Superintendent William Hite, may not be able to open as scheduled next month - but also the city's efforts to collect delinquent taxes, a transportation-funding bill, bills to reform state pensions and, of course, legislation to get the state out of the liquor business.

WHEN I WAS A KID, my brother and I wanted a dog. A big dog. A dog like Marmaduke. Or "The Shaggy D.A. " Or Rin Tin Tin. Instead, my parents got us a mixed breed named Rusty, and because my brother and I were interested only in playing with him, my parents were trapped into poop duty. In later years, I made myself a promise: I'd ignore my children's pleas for a dog, and by doing so, avoid my parents' fate. For years it worked. My wife and I never had to clean up after anyone with more than two legs.

It's a common sight, and not just in the dog days of summer: the pooch with its head stuck out of a car window, ears flapping in the wind. But those free-spirited rides could be history if a controversial new bill gains traction among New Jersey lawmakers. The measure would require motorists to harness non-crated pets - or face a $20 ticket and a possible charge of animal cruelty that carries a civil penalty of up to $1,000. The proposal has drawn both support and ridicule.

The "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" franchise, adapted from Jeff Kinney's illustrated books, has carved out a niche: It's the only current movie series about an everyday kid living an everyday life. Greg Heffley, the flawed but sympathetic hero, may occasionally wish for a wizard's wand to solve his problem, but in the end, the job falls to him. Old-fashioned and small in scale, the movies sometimes feel like after-school specials from a bygone era, which is part of what makes them so endearing.
