Dogapoolooza by Arrow

The best day of my life and my humans forgot the camera!!! This is a picture from that day but I can't find myself in it!

Today two Denver city pools were open for doggies. I was at Cook's Pool at 9:00 am. They let in 100 dogs at a time!! My mom went online and found some pictures. They really don’t show how many dogs were there today. (And they don't show moi)

We waited on line and then they opened the gate! I ran around. I was the first one in the little pool. I went in the big pool too! I met tons of dogs. We all ran around in and out of the pool.

I confess. I ran out the gate when this coon hound was coming in. The gate was almost closed but I’m fast. Then I let myself be caught by a belly-rubbing stranger. Brother Deefy was waiting in a nearby (fenced) dog park. (He doesn't swim and he's not always good with mobs of wet dogs.)

He was lonely and I was hyper. We ran around like crazy dogs. A border collie thought I was a little lamb. She tried to follow me out the gate but my humans weren't having it.

It was me and all the labs and doodles. Kenny Be says it best in Westword:

Kenny Be's Worst-Case Scenario: DogaPOOLooza 50-meter freestyle dog racing

Most Denver dog owners fear that DogaPOOLooza, the annual public-pool dog swim, is a ploy by the city of Denver to get all dogs off their leashes so animal control staff can issue numerous off-leash tickets. Hopefully, the puppy pool party will be so much more....

Hi, Arrow!
You hyper??? Naaah... I don't believe that!
Sounds like you had lots of fun!
Kisses and hugs


That is the best idea ever! I love it but wish they showed arrow. I wanna see a bunny rabbit swim.

Maybe you should have remove the arm floaties first.

Oh, those dogs look like they are having so much fun!

Arrow -- you should be proud you are so well-behaved that you could attend this event.

I think I would have done great there, but my parents thought I might be a little over-excited.

WHAT???? We MISSED THIS? Fergi, who just got her water wings this summer missed this???

We stumbled on your picture this morning in our "Followers" and this is what we found????

The good news is we found YOU! The bad news is we missed out on a swimming experience!

Maybe next year...

How FUN! Puffers likes swimming...odd that he hates baths so much. I don't mind bathies...but HATE swimming...well any that involves water in my ears. If I wade, it's great...but none of that jumping in stuff. I do like to run around the pool and splash at the water or bite at it. I love those itty bitty wading pools though. It sure sounded like you had a GREAT many other doggies to meet n sniff.
