Dog day afternoon in Edmonton
It was a dog day afternoon in Edmonton, Canada.
Edmonton pups enjoyed a little more freedom than usual on Sunday. The pooches gained access to both the Jamie Platz Family YMCA pool and Hawrelak Park usually reserved for humans.
Hundreds of pups, big and small, took a swim in the pool before it was due to be drained for the year. Many were naturals at the doggie paddle, but some needed a little more help.
Pets in the Park is a yearly event that gives animals and their owners a full day of activities. It’s the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Edmonton Humane Society. Money raised in events like dunk for hot dogs, and obstacles courses, goes back to the shelter.
