Pool goes to the dogs

Posted: Monday, Aug 25th, 2014

Every dog has its day, goes an old saying. For Brookings area pooches and their partners that day was Sunday at the third annual Soggy Doggy Day at the Hillcrest Aquatic Center.

About 250 dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds took to the water, some more willingly than others, in both the deep and shallow pools. A couple of the bigger dogs demonstrated their temerity by running, leaping and going airborne off the diving board and into the deeper water.

While their people got in for free, a minimum of $5 per pooch some people gave more brought in about $2,000 for the Brookings Regional Humane Society.
