Dog Days of Summer - August 2004

Once again, the "Dog Days of Summer" was a fun time for all, the dogs loved it!  The 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.

It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny, just right for a Dog Swim!

Another good turn out for this event.
