A day at the pool.

Did I mention that a few weeks ago, our city pool had a dog day?
Every year before closing, they open up the pool to the community for dogs.
You just pay $6, show up to date shot records, and then unleash your beast.
Literally.
They counted down from 3, and I kid you not, at least 75 dogs were on the loose!
They had it pretty fenced off to keep the dogs mostly contained. 
The area was HUGE and there were so many dogs running around everywhere and people watching them.
It was awesomely chaotic!

See for yourself...
{totally picture overload, I know} But I'm at school between classes and didn't have time to pick the best ones. And really, can you have too many cute dog pictures?!}


Jersey was such a dud! She never got in any deeper than this, and was a little nervous nancy the whole time!}



Murph wasn't so sure about the water at first. He just wanted to be chased by other dogs...



Seriously, there were SO many people there!


Hmm...this might not be so bad...


going a little deeper...



Hi Macie! {one of our dog park friends}


See him back there?! I was so proud of him getting in and swimming with the other dogs. I was seriously like a proud mom, snapping all the pics I could!











This is Pepper, a GORGEOUS great dane puppy. She's the same age as Jersey...see a size difference? :)

 




He kept running away from me! I finally got him to sit for .2 seconds to take a picture, but look how annoyed he looks!






But seriously, it was SO much fun. We went with our dog park friends and everyone, people included, had a blast. The pups slept for hourrrrs afterwards, which was also great.
I hear local pools all over do this, definitely worth checking into if you have dogs!

I always wonder how so many stranger dogs can get along in 1 place.

Glad they did though, it looks like they had a blast...and sounds like you did too. haha
