Golden Retrievers Ripley and Finn are regular visitors to the annual Soggy Doggy Pool Party at Prairie Grove Aquatic Park. This is their third year they’ve brought their owners, Heather and Dusty Jebsen of Bentonville, to the pool party, sponsored by Friends of Prairie Grove Pound. Almost 140 dogs enjoyed a hot day Saturday playing and swimming in the Prairie Grove pool.
Saturday’s hot temperatures were perfect for a doggy pool party but probably not as good for their humans, who were not allowed to swim in the water. Friends of Prairie Grove Pound sponsor the annual Soggy Doggy Pool Party to help raise money to pay for vet bills and other costs to care for animals at the Prairie Grove Pound. Local vendors at the event included Arvest Bank, Legend Realty and PG Telco.
Dax, a Foxhound breed, enjoyed fetching lots of tennis balls at the annual Soggy Doggy Pool Party on Saturday. Dax is owned by Andrea Jenkins of Farmington. This unidentified dog looks like she really would like to jump into the water to fetch a tennis ball. However, she did not get up the nerve and instead watched other fellow dogs swimming in the Prairie Grove pool.
