This annual event is a chance to allow your four-footed friends to enjoy a day at the pool (no humans allowed in the water) after it close to the public for the season. The pool is not chlorinated for this event.

A raffle will occur every half hour with prizes, as well as a complimentary hot dog stand for the dogs. Sponsors are Arbor Dog Day Care, Green Pawz Pet Supply, Washtenaw Veterinary Hospital, Groom N Go, The Groomer and A2 Doggy Adventures.

This event is popular and fills up quickly, so register your now so your pet won’t put you in the doghouse!

The 2013 annual dog swim at Buhr Park Outdoor Pool, 2751 Packard Rd., will be Wednesday, Sept. 4 and Thursday, Sept. 5 from 3 to 8 p.m. The cost for the first dog is $6 resident/$7.50 non-resident, and for the second dog, $3 resident/$3.75 non resident. Call 734-794-6234 to register.

"complimentary hot dog stand for the dogs" I find this concept semantically disturbing.
