Cañon City Recreation and Park District’s annual dog bath was held on Monday to celebrate the official closing of the summer season.
From 10 a.m. to noon, dozens of dogs played, waded, and crawled their way in an exhausted frenzy. Dogs of all sizes enjoyed the pool on a scorching 92-degree day and, unlike previous years, owners were allowed to enter the water alongside their pooches.
Ropes, balls, Frisbees and other toys flew through the air as dogs – meant for water or not – jumped after them. It was a day of fun in the sun for everyone involved.
