Dogs take a dip in local YMCA swimming pool.
Before the Exploits Valley YMCA did its annual swimming pool drain and maintenance, dogs and their owners were invited to come in for a dip.
This event was a first for the local YMCA, but lifeguard Devon Gardner said he hopes it will become an annual activity.
There were two one-hour time slots for big and small dogs.
Duke was allowed to bring his stick into the kiddie pool at the YMCA during the doggie dip on Aug. 26. He had a blast chasing his stick into the pool.
