Pooch Pool Party

Rosie, a 1-year-old dog owned by Mindy Bradley of Fayetteville, reaches to grab a ball Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015, while swimming in the children’s pool during the Pooch Pool Party at The Jones Center in Springdale. The facility held the event before draining the pool to begin planned improvements and repairs.

This is one of those ideas that when we see it, we wonder why oh why didn’t we think of that. My wife and I have three dogs, one of whom, Dixie, would love this so much, she might not want to come home again. She would go cuckoo bananas and probably end up in some sort of doggy time out by the time all was said and done.
