The "Dog Days" of Summer was a lot of fun this year. The "Dog Days of Summer" event took place at the Fairview Family Aquatic Center. All dogs were invited to come take a dip in one of the area's most popular summer swimming holes. Prior to the "doggie dip", chlorine was removed from the pool to make it more comfortable for the pooch's skin. Because of the lack of chlorine, only dogs were allowed to swim. Money collected from this event was donated to the Humane Society of Central Illinois. This event was sponsored by the Normal Parks and Recreation Department.
The "Dog Days" of Summer was a fun time for all, especially the dogs. It was a beautiful warm and sunny day! The dogs really know how to enjoy themselves. This pup is practicing.
"Hey, where is everybody?"
"I cannot swim another lap!"
I did it!
Everybody wants to get into the act!
Many people and dogs dropped by.
Relaxing a bit.
"I want to come back next year! Can I?"
