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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
