SR photographer Jesse Tinsley has posted a great photo story from last night's first ever Paws in the Pool dog swim event at Valley Mission Pool. It looks like the dogs were having a lot of fun. Parks and Recreation Director Mike Stone told me this morning that the inaugural event was a great success and will be back next year. Swim on, Fido, swim on!
Spokane Valley's first ever doggie swim day at the pool is Thursday night and organizers have made a few changes. There hasn't been much interest in the small dog (under 34 pounds) catergory, so that group will now swim at the same time as the medium dogs (between 35 and 59 pounds). The new start time is 5 p.m. at Valley Mission Pool, 11123 E. Mission. Large dogs will still swim from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m.
Remember that your dog has to have a current rabies vaccination and must be accompanied by an adult. All dogs will get a rinse before they are allowed in the pool, so allow time for that. There are other conditions as well; click here for details.
