Pooches Take A Plunge

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Some pooches got to take the plunge this weekend at Howard Amon Park in Richland.

For a small fee dogs were let into a special weekend long dog park that was connected to the wading pool. The pool closes Labor Day weekend to the public so before completely closing the pool they let the dogs take a swim. Plenty of four legged friends got to play around with each other and socialize.

"A lot of people don't quite trust their dogs to go swimming in the river and ever come back, so this is a great place for them to socialize with other dogs to go splashing around in the pool and they have a great time," said Alexandra Olson from the Tri-City Dog Park Society.

The money raised from the plunge this weekend on Saturday and Sunday will go towards developing dog parks in the Tri-Cities.
