Canines mark dog days of summer at Mineral Beach pool

It was all about the dogs on Monday at Mineral Beach in Finleyville.

The community swimming pool hosted its second annual Labor Day “Dog Swim” from 5 to 8 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Washington Area Humane Society, no-kill shelter in Eighty Four funded solely by private contributions. The shelter takes in thousands of animals and investigates an average of 1,000 abuse complaints each year.

In addition to getting to cool off, the beloved pets were treated to doggie bags. A best canine bathing suit contest was also part of the fun.

Over 175 dogs had fun in the sun at last year's event and it looks like this year's was just as succesful.
