|This isn't me because I don't know how to swim!|
Do you live in Vancouver, Washington? If you do, you’ll want to know about this. It’s Pooch Plunge time again!
You can bring your four-legged friend to the Marshall Community Center pool for the second annual Pooch Plunge on Monday, Sept. 1.
There are two scheduled swims this year:
* 12-1:30 p.m. for small dogs only (25 lbs. and under)
* 1:30-4 p.m. for all dogs (large and small)
Admission to the Pooch Plunge is $5 per dog, cash or check only. The community center will be closed for maintenance on this date, so participants will need to enter through the rear pool patio doors.
The Marshall Community Center is located at 1009 E. McLoughlin Blvd., near the Clark College campus.
Lifeguards will be provided to help keep your best friend safe. All dogs must be current on shots, dog and people friendly, and be willing to swim (no tossing your dog in). Human companions are not allowed in the pool during this event but we will have staff in the pool to assist dogs.
The City is completing annual maintenance on the pool that week and will drain and clean the pool after the Pooch Plunge event.
For more information, please call the Marshall Community Center at (360) 487-7100.
Having shared all this…. I have to say, I’m not going. I just like wading a bit and am not sure I even know how to swim. Now if they offered swimming lessons for dogs, I might be up for that!
