Every dog has his day, and this month that day is Wednesday August 16, when the Top Dog Film Festival plays at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace. Top Dog is a min-fest of eight short films that celebrate the special bond between human and canine. The two-hour pooch party covers such topics as the world of dog-powered sports, the first canine sent into space, owners and their senior dogs, and the story of a 600km hike through the Utah Desert lasting a full dog year. 

Tickets are $25.50 ($16.50 for lil' pups) and the screening starts at 8.30pm. But you'll want to arrive early because there will be two very special guests at the cinema from 8pm – Biscuit and Pikelet, the North Sydney pugs with more than 112,000 Instagram followers. Be sure to form an orderly line, puppy lovers.
