Do you ever wonder how your dog feels when you take them to public events like the farmer's market, the Starbuck's drive-thru -- or OPA's very own Jazz on the Green? We conducted a very scientific study and found that the dogs who attend JOTG are big fans of a good boogie-woogie. In fact, this year, the dogs came out in droves to enjoy the sweet summer tradition at Turner Park in Midtown Crossing. Here's proof!

This tiny pupper named Chuck made sure to keep one ear up at all times so he could hear the music.

At. All. Times.

This doggo is more of an R&B fan but couldn't help but crack a smile at the jazzy tunes.

These siblings, who I was told are second-generation puggles (that's a pug beagle mix, for everyone at home), were so excited about JOTG that they practically screamed with glee.

But this beagle was there to soak it allllll in.

And this dog? This dog was so into the music he could practically taste it. Or maybe it was just the food vendors that got him all worked up. We can't say. That wasn't part of the scientific study.

Bonnie and Clyde were a match made in heaven-- just like jazz and summertime.
