I had one of those ‘woe is me’ moments in September 2013, lamenting that on top of my personal dog-related To-Do lists there is so much dog-related reading to take in each month–much of it covering canine science research. It often feels like I’ll miss something, and it can be difficult to keep up with it all.

To save you from this fate, here’s what you should not miss in June 2014:
