RICHLAND, WA- The 6th annual Pooch Plunge took over the Howard Amon wading pool Saturday and Sunday.

The park had a temporary dog park that connected to the wading pool for dogs to enjoy before the pool closed for the season.  The cost was $5 per dog and that money went towards amenities for the Tri-Cities only dog park.

Owners let their dogs run around on the grass and play with other dogs. 

Organizers said they want to keep doing the event as long as the city will allow them.

“It's just a lot of fun even if your dog doesn't like it, sometimes it's just nice to watch all the other dogs playing around.  I know my dog does not like the Pooch Plunge.  She hates the water, but she likes meeting new people and other dogs, so it's good for her,” said Alexandra Olson, Secretary of Tri-City Dog Park Society.

Dogs must be sprayed or neutered and have up to date vaccinations in order to plunge in the pool.  The event will go Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
